Deep Mud Warning

Please be aware that there is very deep mud, field side of the river about 100m upstream from Giffords Pool, so best to avoid this area. If you want to fish the Poundbury Beat, it is best to walk down from the Withy Bed (field side) to the new stile and fish back up.


Please also be aware of unstable banks and that the river has also changed considerably after the winter floods, so please don’t enter the water presuming there is a nice gravel bank, because it may have been washed away!

On the positive side the grannom are hatching and fish are being caught.. So please just be careful and enjoy your fishing.
