This is a shared section of water that we have access to and is good for game fishing and wading is preferred for this type of fishing. We do not put dedicated bailiffs on but our bailiffs do go on and check permits at times, it tends to be checked by the clubs anglers due to the good game fishing.
There are coarse fish in this section and access is good to the waterside all along its stretch. We also have the River Brownie that meets the lower end section of our stretch where it meets the wear. We have the fishing on the Brownie a good way back to the viaduct and is good on the small fly with light tackle at times but best wading rather than bank side fishing at times.
