Location & Parking
Approximately 1.25 miles of river offering good sport throughout the season.
Huge Barbel, Chub and Roach are regularly caught from this stretch which connects to the top boundary of Bounds Farm. In the Summer months Barbel and Chub can be spotted on the shallower gravel runs by the observant angler.
Float fishing with hemp and tares can offer excellent Roach sport throughout the Summer and Autumn. Bread flake is still a good Chub bait and so often overlooked. Particles, maggots and Casters are worthy baits for Barbel and Chub.
Don't rule out artificial baits if small fish keep stripping the hook.
