Tansterne Fishery Information


Our Fishery is a float only fishing venue with a total of 48 fishing pegs. Originally consisting of three separate ponds, the Main pond, Car Park pond and Canal pond, the 'Car Park Pond' has since been joined with the 'Main Pond' to form a larger fishing pond with all fish from the main pond having access to this area.


Pegs on the main pond run anti clockwise from peg 1 to peg 37. Peg 1 is on the north side (canal pond side) nearest to the buildings.

Pegs on the canal pond are numbered 38 to 48 with 38 nearest to the buildings


We have a number of pegs available for less abled anglers within 20 yards of parking.  A porta loo and free car parking for anglers. The fishery is open all year, hours are dawn until dusk.

Tansterne Fishery is open for match bookings and charity events with special rates for large bookings.
Please contact us for more information.


No children unless accompanied by an adult.

Please do not leave any litter.

Note:  Floating bread is no longer allowed.

General Tactics

In the summer season most baits will work although maggots tends to attract the perch.

Maggot - pellet - sweetcorn - meat - bread (on the hook only)- chopped worm - cheese - paste.  They all work

Please, find a peg and stick with it or move all your gear to another one. We do not like to see your or another anglers equipment damaged by walkabout anglers





Fishing in Yorkshire - Tansterne Fishing Ponds

original view of the Main Pond




The 'Main Pond' and 'Car Park Pond' were originally two separate ponds but are now joined to form one pond.


The pond is 3 feet 6 inches deep around the island and falling away to 5 feet 6 inches after the sunken island at peg 4 and 35

The main pond is split in two by a walkway bridge

Once you cross over the bridge, the depth increases to 7 feet and there is a ledge around the island that sits about 2 feet under the surface and protrudes 2-3 feet

original view of the Car Park Pond

The Car Park pond was constructed in 2010 as a separate pond with an upturned saucer bottom so that it is shallower in the middle. The car park pond is now part of the main pond and covers the area from peg 23 to 33


The depths vary in this area with the deepest points to 10 feet


The margins fish exceptionally well and is ideal for waggler fishing
