Sussex Ouse


Station Road, Uckfield, TN22 5, East Sussex, United Kingdom

Fishery Information

The fishery provides CDAS members with access to roughly 8 miles of the Ouse River. Located in north-central England, the river comes with different characters, making anglers move to the fish, rather than the other way around.

Newick is ideal for perch, chub, roach, as well as eels. Moving on, Anchor Inn is suitable for bream and carp catch, while Barcombe Mill and below has plenty of sea trout. Barbel has also been reported in these waters, but can be quite rare.

Overall, there’s a wide range of species available, both sea and fresh. Koi and grass carp might also be encountered. The mouth of the river features a tidal, while both slow and fast flowing sections are also present.

Anglers can fully access 3 weirs, have partial access to Barcombe, and may also try their luck on the slice available on St. Andrews. The latter is a stream.
