Default Fox inn on river trent

Hi All,

was driving over the road Bridge on the A617 at Newark,

there is Kelham hall country park. and I see that fishing is allowed along this stretch of river and was wandering if anyone has fished it. I was driving back from bakewell with the wife after a week on holiday. the river Trent at Kelham looked amazing and only being 130 miles from Lowestoft in Suffolk. not a million miles away for a weekends fishing stay in a B & B.

just wanted any info on the river and what fish are currently about.

never fished for Barbel before so looking at having a weekends fishing for them. if anyone know of anywhere closer that has Barbel running in it that would be great.

just another question can Barbel be caught all year round or is there only times of the year that they are most active.

Many thanks all

Tight lines.

Alex

Suffolk Stour , Wensum, Yare ? They all contain Barbel . As far as all year round Barbel fishing ,yes they can be caught in all seasons but as a generalisation catching would be harder as temperatures drop

On that stretch of the 'natural' river that flows around Newark there are few stretches where day tickets are available. Kelham Hall have a good number of pegs, Smeaton's Caravan park have 8 and there are others on the A1 fishery. The latter also have a stretch of the navigable river below the confluence where the natural river joins Newark Dyke. The vast majority of the river is controlled by the Nottingham Piscatorial Society and is strictly maintained as a members only fishery.

I hope that helps.
