Gave it a try today as it's nearby, fished downstream of the bridge. Obviously water is low at the moment, 2 to 3 feet deep max with many shallow runs. Fished 4 different pegs, had small roach, chub, an eel and a trout, the trout being the biggest at about 8oz. Also a few minnows but not enough to be a pain considering I used maggots.

As the BAA suggests it's a roving water, travel light, a short session venue, evening / half a day type water although I did 6 hours and had about a dozen fish excluding the minnows. Judging by the water line along the bank it looks about a foot down on normal level, will be interesting to see if some rain brings the bigger fish out.

Very peaceful there, little traffic on the adjacent lane, easy parking. Hope this info helps if you are thinking of giving it a go. Couple of pics attached to give the general idea of what it's like.

Re: River Alne... new BAA water.

That looks a nice place to fish ......I used to fish this river upstream from there about half a mile I guess by wootten hall ....never caught any big fish but always had plenty of mixed sport ......chub ,roach,dace,perch,even trout....I think my biggest was no more than a pound but like I said plenty of em.......I don’t think I can go to this new stretch,I’ve been told my van is too big to park......maybe I’ll get someone to take me in a smaller vehicle.......
