Coniston Cold just up the A59 from Skipton, it's only 24 acres, has 4 boats, so may only be suitable for 2 or 3 tubes.
20.00 a day 2 fish limit.

Lakehill Fishery in Llandegla North Wales allows float tubing. Not been there on my tube for a couple of years but the website is still working and I know someone bank fished it in June this year. A beautiful tubing venue where the entire bank is accessible with a tube.

Just back from a trip to Lakehill on my tube.
Very good few hours fishing, started on intermediate then onto the dries.

So I can confirm the fishery is available for float tubes (still!).

Default Float tubing on England's waters

After reading badcaster's post I went to Lake Hill Fishery today and it is a very nice water to tube on.. Excellent entry & exit due to gentle sloping gravel.. Very good water quality but levels down by 9ft I was told by the owner..Got a bit choppy at times as it is a high lake hence the name .. and exposed but plenty of fish caught..

Lol.. No Taterdu they have had to pull water off to subsidise another Resi lower down as their water was not as pure as Lake hills .. Lake hill is suppose to be 75ft deep to the middle ..?

Fished it last week, did ok on dries, owner very obliging as I turned up with no money and he let me fish on whilst I waited for a friend to turn up with the cash (cheers Dave) I inquired about a practice fly fishing session from my yak, he said "no problem" which makes a change in Wales. Lovely clear water as usual at Lake Hill and the fish fight well. Clay shooting range a couple of miles away a bit tiresome on a Sunday.
