River Waveney – tidal sections – Ellingham

High tide at the top of the tidal reach is about the same as at London Bridge - you can check the tide times here.

This is also a day ticket water - Non members must purchase a day ticket before starting to fish. The nearest outlet for day tickets is Crossways of Ellingham, A143 Yarmouth Road, Ellingham, NR35 2TQ (about 1.5 miles away). Tel. 01508518400.

Limited parking for about four cars on the road edge just south of the bridge.

We have one marsh here.

This is the top of the tidal limit of the river with a rise and fall of about 24". Not that deep in the early pegs but the end marshes are. Weedy in the summer but if you can find a hole there are good Chub, Roach and Perch to be had. Good for Pike in the winter.

A popular stretch for canoes during the summer but plenty of river to share.

The farmer, Brian Quantrill and his brother, David, are our excellent friends, so please give every consideration to their property, access and cattle.
