Stoke Bardolph, the River Trent, Nottinghamshire, United Kingdom
Stoke Bardolph is a lovely venue if you are looking for pristine rivers to fish on. The section above Stoke Lock and Weir boasts unspoiled rivers that hold all the usual variety of fish you would expect with plenty of fine specimens. The hardcore track along this section is a public footpath, so vehicles are not allowed. Anglers are also not allowed to obstruct the track with equipment.
The section above the Weir is a 200-yard walk, so anglers are advised to either go light or take a barrow. The stretch can be accessed via the gated road from Stoke Bardolph near the Ferry Boat Inn. The Weir itself can be accessed via the same route and you would have to walk over to the Lock Gates onto the Island.
The Road Stretch is their day ticket water with 39 permanent pegs.
Ferry Field below the Lock can be accessed through the gated road. They allow cars to be parked behind visitors’ pegs or at the side of the tarmac road, especially when wet.
Nelson Field downstream of the Road Stretch can be accessed through the gated road adjacent to Burton Joyce Railway station and crossing. They allow cars to be left adjacent to the tarmac road and parked off the road behind the hedge running alongside the railway.
The Rack and Cherry Orchard can be accessed through Nelson Field. Over the cattle grid, turn immediate right and follow the dirt track to the river and you’ll see a gate with Ashfields Lock. Once in this field, cars can be parked behind your peg. Please note that this section could be wet and muddy in places following flood.
