Ticket required
You must hold a valid EA Rod Licence and one of the following tickets prior to fishing at River Weir - Maiden Castle:




If you purchased your ticket online via Castbooker, please bring your confirmation email and some form of identification with you when you fish as you may need to show them to a Bailiff (this can be printed or on your phone).

Pole tactics at 10m to the far bank have been the favoured with a mixture of baits including maggots pellets & corn. Some carp exceed 5-6lb so you may need to use other tactics to land the odd bigger carp.


Park only in the locations shown and please do not obstruct any gate entrances to fields.

Downstream from the upstream boundary fence at Shincliffe Hall to Maiden Castle.

  • March 15th to June 15th ( i.e. Coarse fish close season) any legal method but no ground baiting, loose feeding and no maggot in any form (lease read EA byelaws)

  • June 16th to March 14th, (inclusive) any method allowed but ground baiting by swimfeeder only.

The Committee recommends the use of barbless hooks at all     times. However, hooks larger than size 10 must be barbless or crushed barb.

It is recommended that all members read the E.A. Byelaws as new night fishing bye laws apply when targeting sea trout and salmon
