Fishing is from Sunrise to Sunset only – no night fishing.

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

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.

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.
