River Etherow /

A varied 25+ peg stretch of the River Etherow


River Etherow

Chub and barbel inhabit this beat as well as trout and grayling giving an even more diverse range of fishing available for Club members. Due to the rivers past history of pollution incidents and the Club's desire to increase a naturalised population of fish, all fish in the river are strictly catch & release only. The river is regularly bailiffed by EA and Club officials.

The river is quite varied over DNMAC’s beat. There are long deep glides, fast shallow sections, some interesting bends and a weir pool!

Fish Species

The main species of fish in the Etherow are Chub, Barbel, Trout, Grayling, Roach & Minnows!
