Fishing at Malham Tarn

Angling at Malham Tarn was unable to go ahead in 2021. We committed to consulting on the future of angling and this process is now open.

The consultation will run from 1st October until 31st October. We made the decision to carry the consultation process out online due to the global pandemic and the predicted rise in cases as we head into autumn. It also means we can record the feedback more fairly and make sure everyone has a chance to have their say. Including those who live a long way from Malham and would be unable to attend meetings in person. We are using survey monkey to carry out the consultation and there is space for additional comments and feedback.

Please read the briefing document before opening the survey monkey as this provides an overview of the options we are consulting on.

The National Trust is updating its website from mid-October and so we will not be able to update this webpage until this work is completed. We will update it as soon as we can with the outcomes. Outcomes will also be sent by email if we have your contact details. We anticipate being able to do this in mid-November. The decision about the future of angling will be made by the staff team at Malham based on the feedback we receive.
