A real hot-spot for specimen fish including barbel, chub and pike. Fishing can be quite superb and as good as anywhere on the river.
Directions: As for the Long Meadow, but instead of turning right into field alongside the railway go straight ahead. Over the stile and you’re on the Island. Turn left or right, or go straight across to reach the river.
NORMAL CLOSE SEASON APPLIES. (15th March to 15th June inclusive)
NOT SUITABLE FOR INFIRM OR DISABLED.
See Long Meadow for ‘barbel information’.
BEWARE: THERE ARE OVERHEAD ELECTRICITY WIRES CROSSING THE ISLAND AND RIVER - ANGLERS MUST NOT FISH WITHIN 30 YARDS OF OVERHEAD WIRES
