River Wenning

Peter Scholes

The Pretty little River Wenning rises south west of Clapham and becomes the River Wenning after Clapham Beck, Austwick Beck and Kettles Beck merge; it then flows in a westerly direction until eventually joining the River Lune roughly midway between Kirkby Lonsdale and Lancaster.

Set off the beaten track in stunning limestone countryside and overlooked by Ingleborough one of Yorkshire's “Three Peaks” the Wenning is a great place to be fishing.

The River Wenning is perhaps traditionally know as a Sea Trout river, but there is a good head of wild Brown Trout and the odd Salmon. The Wenning has good numbers of Mayflies, Stoneflies and Caddis and being tree lined along its length has more than its fair share of terrestrials.

The River Wenning is within easy reach of Manchester, Bradford, Leeds, Preston and Lancaster and with a railway station at Clapham easily reached even from the south of England.

"It was a wonderful 40th birthday treat to be flyfishing on the river. It was great to be with such a patient and knowledgable fisherman. Hope to do it again Pete and buy some of your tackle off you."
