Fisheries In The North West


It’s just you and your fishing rod, relaxing the day away, just waiting for that perfect catch.

Whatever it is about fishing that attracts so many people – the beautiful surroundings, the tranquil environment, the eager anticipation of catching a “big one”, or the chance to just escape with your thoughts, you’ll be hooked when you do it in one of the fisheries in the North West, and Lancashire in particular.

Situated in the heart of the Ribble Valley, the River Ribble is acclaimed as one of the best fishing rivers in England. With plenty of top quality fish to be caught – including Salmon, Sea Trout, Chub, and Brown Trout – fishing in Lancashire is sure to really test and challenge your skills with a rod and line. What’s more, with many of the country’s fisheries offering on-site accommodation, you can even get away for a short weekend break!

Just five minutes up the road from the Hodder Foot (a short stretch of water on the River Ribble which is widely accepted to be the best Salmon fishing on the Ribble system), the Shireburn Arms provides the perfect haven of escape for anglers after a long day of fishing at the nearby rivers. Open all day for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, the Shireburn Arms restaurant offers a superb menu and features many local specialities using the freshest local ingredients. Take a look at our Food and Drink, and drop us a call to make a reservation!
