Loads of random peaople seem to fish the clifton side. Went up a couple of weeks back and there were 3 or 4 bivvies and tents up on the clifton side. Pretty frustrating when we're paying for pretty much the same water.
Thanks for the help so far, does anyone know who controls the water below Holme Weir on the Holme Pierrepont side. I know that Long Eaton have the opposite bank, but I understand they have closed their bank for flood alievation work. It seems amazing that anyone hardly fishes the trent around Nottingham anymore!
I fished the embankment last year, and saw no one else fishing!
Had 3 hours on the Trent today near Nottingham. Wow! a fish a chuck! Quality roach, dace, with a few good chub, and three pound plus perch. All caught on red maggot. Around 20lb of fish. Much more fun IMO than commercial puddles. Long may most people stay away from the rivers.
Yep, Ashfield anglers, right pain 6 per day, have to walk to lock to get a key to drive into field, drop gear off and then park car at lock car park. They also have the water above the lock and several other bits of the river. They have a web site.
i think the holme pit action group control upstream of the weir on the clifton side, which is private fishing only - never actually seen anyone on there though, downstream i think its clifton anglers association, the same ones who own the clifton bridge pegs, theyre day ticket. the actual weir may be a bit of a grey area though, not seen any signs about.
