Salmon fishing

The Ultimate Salmon Fishing Stay

The River Ure is one of North Yorkshire’s best kept secrets as a premier salmon river!

This is a magical river, meandering through the iconic rolling hills of Wensleydale in the stunning Yorkshire Dales. The Blue Lion Inn is just a short distance away, making it the perfect location for all standards of fishermen.

Here at The Blue Lion we are able to offer a day on the river at a fraction of the cost of what is paid on Scottish rivers and provide our guests with an excellent day’s fishing. There are some lovely deep holding pools, tempting runs and glides.

Enjoy a day’s fishing on our private beat, combined with dinner, bed and breakfast in our quintessential 18th century English coaching inn; with its exposed beams, relaxing atmosphere, sumptuous food, fine wines and real ale.
