Good depths to 14 feet to your right with 8 feet close to.

Shallower areas are to the left hand side to 5 feet, where Rudd and Carp prosper, with similar depths at the bottom, river, end.

A good head of Carp to 20lb with Tench approaching double figures present and some quality Bream; also stocked with Roach, Rudd, Crucian, Skimmers and Perch, making it an excellent mixed fishery.
