Downstream of the bridge, left hand bank for one field, to the weir, and upstream right hand bank through to Salehurst (Church Footbridge)
The river is smaller here, narrower, shallower and meanders noticeably, not having been straightened in the 1960s and 1970s, though upstream of the weir it’s a little deeper and slower. A water ideally suited to roving fishing, light tackle, single rod, and in places upstream it is helpful to have a rope pegged to the bank top to aid access down to the river, which can be as much as 12 – 15 feet down, and a small sickle to trim vegetation.
The river here is noted for fish like Chub, but reputedly there have been catches made of occasional golden orfe!
Upstream of the bridge is Park Farm campsite and so there are other permitted users of the river besides RFA members
- Brown Trout
All access points are clearly marked with large RFA signs – green background / white text (although on some older signs it is green text on while background.)
Check RFA Rules before fishing – for example, there is NO NIGHT FISHING ALLOWED!
Parking difficult on road but possible in Park Farm Camp Site car park – see manager.
