Belper & District Angling Club controls fishing on a range of 3 diverse venues in Derbyshire, offering anglers the choice of river fishing, stillwater fishing and canal fishing.

Our oldest and most famous venue is a long stretch of double bank fishing on the middle River Derwent, stretching from Ambergate down to Milford. The Belper stretch of the Derwent is available to fish on day ticket, as well as being available to all members with a club book.

The club runs the fishing on Wyver Lane Pond in Belper. This pond is available exclusively to members. It fishes well all year and contains a mixture of species, including carp to over 20lb.

Another of the club’s venues is a mile-long stretch of the Erewash Canal close to Langley Mill. Fishing on the canal is available to members only and contains a mixture of species including bream, perch, carp and pike.
