SCALING DAM RESERVOIR
CONVENIENTLY LOCATED NEAR TEESSIDE AND WHITBY, SCALING DAM ENJOYS A LOVELY SETTING WITHIN THE NORTH YORK MOORS NATIONAL PARK
The reservoir is surrounded by beautiful wild heather moorland and is relatively shallow, making it an excellent choice for both fly and bait anglers alike. You can now loose feed and ground bait around the reservoir.
Scaling Dam is accessible for disabled anglers with a disabled platform close to the visitor centre.
The best locations to fish include the dam wall, dog leg and disabled platform. For those who like to wander, the middle reaches of the reservoir provide some fantastic sport particularly on the south shore and shallow east end bay.
On site we have an excellent lodge shop stocked with everything you need for a day’s fishing including rods, reels, tackle, accessories, clothing, worms, bait, ice creams and refreshments including hot and cold drinks.
For the rest of the family, there is a pleasant circular walk, a section of which is wheelchair accessible, plus several lovely picnic areas along the way offering wonderful views and a place for you to relax at.
