TCR Hub Carp Fishing


The Barnard Castle Angling Club is proud to say that we are now connected to the TCR Hub.

TCR Hub Website – Fishing

The Hub has kindly said that the club is able to use the water,
To be able to fish you must have
• A valid yearly membership as part of the club
• A environmental agency license
These must be shown at reception when you pay for your day.
• You must have your own equipment as none can be provided

The Hub ponds will be open for all fisherman not just people from the club so if you have friends and family that would like to join you, then you are welcome. It is recommended to tell The Hub 2 days in advance of you going fishing to make sure there is nothing booked on the ponds. Check dates with Rachel or Laura on 01833 690150. It is £6 for the day for an Adult and £3 a day for Concessions.

The Hub have also kindly offered us 1 Free Fish per Adult Member and 10 Free Fishes for children under the age of 18. Vouchers for this are at the Toy Shop. Please show this years license to pick one up. There is only 1 per member. Depending on how many of the BCAClub members use the ponds the amount of free fishes may increase so its worth going.

The ponds are totally disabled access friendly and there are two large ponds that can be used. (Currently there is maintenance to the bottom pond (shown in image above) so this maybe restricted at this time). Disabled friendly facilities are also available and the club is able to use the cafe as well.

Members MUST follow all the rules and a copy can be found here that you can print if needed: TCR Fishing Rules
Anyone seen breaking the rules will be banned from the premises.

Opening Times:

Monday – Thursdays: 9am – 9pm
Friday: 9am – 5pm
Saturday: 9am – 3pm
Sunday: Closed

I have been informed that you are allowed to use the waters on Sundays even though the toilets and cafe are closed but the Hub must be asked 2 days in advance to make arrangements before you arrive for safety reasons and to make sure the ponds are not being used for other means. You may also need to ask The Hub staff about how you gain access to the water on these occasions.

BCAClub is also looking to hold fishing lessons and competitions for young anglers next year so we will be looking for members to help with this. Please contact Frank Harrison if you would like to put your name down to provide assistance with this.

Please take pictures of your time and let us know what you think over email or the Facebook page. We would love to hear your thoughts.
