Big fish water this one, with Barbel into double figures, plenty of Chub, Roach, Dace and Pike. Best method on this stretch is the feeder for big fish but make sure you have the correct tackle as there are some animals about so strong rods and line are a must.
Bait’s; Meat, Caster, or Corn with plenty of Hemp
There are plenty of pegs for float fish anglers for Roach and Dace, but minnows can be a problem in the warmer months.
Parking is available at the top of the meadow just inside the gate, near the last bungalow in the lane. Then only a short walk to the river.
Controlled length approximately: 0.5 Miles from the stile two pegs below the island downstream of the point marked, as far as the stile upstream, one peg past the railway bridge.
