River Ouse – Newick to Barcombe belongs to Copthorne & District Angling Society which is a traditional, non-commercial Society that was established more than 80 years ago. There’s a water sharing agreement with the Ouse Angling Preservation Society. This gives CDAS members access to 8 miles of it in total. The river changes in character from Newick to Barcombe.
At Newick it is generally quite quick and good for chub, roach and perch (and eels). At the Anchor Inn it changes to a slower moving river with carp and bream more predominant. Below Barcombe Mill it is tidal with a good run of sea trout. The upper part is only very likely fished you are unlikely to encounter another angler. In total there’s unrestricted access to 3 weirs and some access to Barcombe weir. There is also another sluice on St Andrews stream that is being fished. There are also a few barbel to be caught although to be fair there doesn’t appear to be many.
