About Yeadon Tarn

Yeadon Tarn in Yorkshire is a lake that is about 3½ acres in size. The main issue with this lake is that it is shared with a local boating club. This means that on weekends and in the early evening, the water can get very busy with sailboats and a motor launch that creates large waves.

There are paths around the lake that make it easy to access all the fishing spots. However, this also means that there are a lot of walkers and sometimes nosy kids who may bother you while you are fishing. The lake is close to Yeadon, so it can get crowded with school kids during the holidays.

The lake is stocked with bream and carp, with most carp being around 5lbs but some bigger ones occasionally caught. There are also roach and perch in the water. The lake is shallow and tends to fish better in hot weather. Match weights can reach up to 35lbs in evening matches, with good back up weights over 20lbs.

The best tactic for fishing in this lake is to fish on the bottom, using quiver or swingtips to avoid the boats. It is also possible to catch fish closer to shore using a float.

Fishing is allowed from sunrise until dusk, but no night fishing is allowed. Only barbless hooks are allowed, and there are restrictions on shot sizes. Poles cannot be placed across the paths to avoid damage. Only one rod can be used at a time, but others can be prepared for use.
