A wide range of fishing is available on the Swinton Estate, which stretches from the river valley in Wensleydale up onto the moorland Dales.
The five lakes in the parkland at Swinton Park are home to pike, tench and perch. For guests staying at the castle, the Orvis Rod Room is well equipped with Orvis fly rods and flies, jackets, waders, coarse rods – and a drying cupboard for those caught out in the elements! A refundable deposit of £50 applies for use of the rods.
Please note that for all fishing on the Swinton Estate, individuals are responsible for organising their own fishing licences.
