Fished it loads lower down - ie Peterborough city centre and below. Have never had the nerve to try the tidal stretch between Dog & Doublet and Wisbech but have had plenty of pike and zander further up. Ferry Meadows - a gravel pit complex linked to the river upstream of P'boro - is fishing well according to the weeklies.
I can only really speek for the bits through Northampton. Nene AC hold a lot of the water, including A big streach through Kingsthorpe (walkers mill) I've seen (but never fished for) some massive roach in there. They also have a good streach going past Sixfields (Northampton Town FC) I've had some good fun with Pike there... They also have the Weir section on the Bedford road (I think).... On a simular note Does anyone know who has the fishing rights for the Gravel pits on the Weedon road now ? Nr the footie ground ?
Birdsnest, Two gravel pits? I think you will find only the one now. Controlled by Nene AC - thats a laugh! It holds some cracking tench still and good pike but does not get fished a lot because of parking and how busy it gets with kids mucking about all night.
yeah I herd that, well I have been away for 5 years !! Is it really that boad now ? I used to spend most of my time fishing there... Tench early on, the pike later in the season.. Kids messing about ??? Thats probably come about from all the development around there...
Thats a shame that... Iused to have a good time fishing down there.. Why was the other pit filled in ? what happened to the fish? are they in the 'Duston Res" ???
What about the North Bank and tidal - anyone fishing those..? Looked at tidal by bottom of Guyhirn Gull the other week, where Moreton's Leam joins - fish rising everywhere but never seen anyone fish it.
