To reach this fishery you head for South Clifton on the A1133. If travelling from the South you turn onto the A1133 from the A46 (Via the A1), if travelling from the North you turn onto the A1133 from the A156 at Torksey.
Take the most southerly of the two turnings sign posted to South Clifton (1st from the South, 2nd from the North) and head into South Clifton. As you enter South Clifton, just prior to the village green on the left, turn left into Coal Yard Lane. Drive down the that lane and you will see a barn conversion in front of you. Carry on down the lane and stop well before the farmhouse on your left. Park responsibly and you will have to walk from there.
We have a lease agreement with Rotherham for their water at South Clifton, however the Griffiths are refusing to accept this. Legal action is taking place between Rotherham and the Griffiths.Until this is resolved we would advise members to fish the upper stretch over the style which the Griffiths have no claim of. The parking area and road, are owned and maintained by Nottingham county council and the path from the road along the floodbank to the upper stretch is a public footpath. We would like to reiterate that there never has been any dispute between us and Rotherham, Both parties are eager to resolve the problem. Any update on proceedings will be put on the forum.
Pictures will be posted on here asap to clarify the gates on this fishery.
From there you walk through the field gate and over a style into the meadow to our upper stretch. Please walk on the floodbank top to reach our stretch. Walk through that meadow, upstream, and follow the river bank to a second style. Our Upper section of fishery starts at that second style and continues to the next field fence. It is not as far as it sounds and is well worth the effort. The stretch is well laid out with comfortable banks, and contains a good head of barbel, chub and silver fish.
Parking at this venue. If you park on the grass verge where we have historically parked and are told to move please park a little further back from the barn conversion . Stay on the flood bank top (public foot path) until you reach second gate which is our upper venue.
Start of our upper section of this fishery is at the second gate
