River Ivel – Twin Bridges, Sandy

Venue Information

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 summertime it can suffer from a weed problem.

However, for such a small river it holds a remarkable head of fish. Roach and Chub are the prominent species but Bream, Carp, Dace, Gudgeon and Tench can show from just about anywhere on the venue.

Tips and Techniques

Watch the weather, this venue throws up it’s best catches when extra water is running off.

For Chub try pole-fished caster in the slack by the road bridge.

When conditions allow the stick float or waggler can produce good bags of Roach and Dace. When carrying extra water ledgered worm will often tempt the Chub.

In the summer fish can be seen between the weed growth, ledgering baits like bread or cheese can produce a positive response from the wary Chub population.
