As you would expect angling is a popular pastime, with sea angling taking place from the shore and jetties, the pier at Whitby and charter vessels run by local fishermen. For sea fishermen who would like to go out on a boat you may like to check out Whitby Chartered Skippers Association for information about how to go fishing out in the North Sea.
For those of you with rod and line who wish to remain on dry land then look into fishing from the shoreline at Sandsend or even the pier at Whitby.
Fresh water fishing is available on the River Esk and at Scaling Dam reservoir but Licences are required.
If you are involved in an angling or fishing activity that we have missed or with any of the listed activities in the Esk Valley, please Contact Us to discuss adding information and details to this web site.
