Matlock Angling Club River Derwent

Matlock AC maintain seven beats on the River Derwent; Matlock, Matlock Bath (No Fly Fishing), The Gas Works, Darley Bridge, Pic-Tor & High-Tor, Oaker and Snitterton.

With literally 100’s of pegs available the river offers varied opportunities for the angler throughout the year. Trout and grayling are the predominant species but barbel and chub can be found in most stretches for anglers prepared to spend some time getting to know the river. Dace, roach and quality perch are also to be found as are the occasional carp especially in the Matlock Bath beats.

Please be aware that some stretches of the river are extremely deep and there are many unseen holes, anyone wading should take adequate precautions. Occasionally water will be released from reservoirs upstream which can cause levels to rise very fast.
No day tickets are available for any of these beats or any Matlock waters.

Tactics: Fly fishing, stick float, feeder/legering. The river offers a diverse fishing experience
