Fly-fishing on Malham Tarn, Yorkshire Dales

Fishing at Malham Tarn

Angling at Malham Tarn was unable to go ahead in 2020/21. We committed to consulting on the future of angling and this process took place in October.

We are currently working with our Estate Management team to finalise the details of a tender process for interested parties who want to run angling at Malham Tarn. We anticipate that the tendering process will start in May. If there is a successful party who can take on the fishing operation, it will then take some time to organise the lease and ensure all the processes and equipment are in place.

We will update the website as soon as we can with the outcome. We will also email those that have expressed an interest in the future of angling at Malham Tarn if we have your contact details.
