We control about 1/2 mile (both banks) of the lovely Rivel Ivel.
The river is non-navigable being only 11 metres wide and a foot deep in places, hence in summer time it can suffer form a weed problem.
However, for such a small river it holds a remarkable head of fish. Road and Chub are the prominent species but carp, bream, tench, dace and gudgeon can show from just about anywhere on the venue.
