The river leaves Bottom Flash and enters the Marina returning to a river proper.
Deepening and flowing this stretch holds roach and skimmer shoals,ruffe, perch
and rudd, these are the start of the main match lengths offering good sport
all the season round.The inlet behind is shallow and silty but holds tench and
carp as well as some hybrids and the usual species, and also lots of ducks!
This area has been decked out for barges so expect to see a lot of them !
The river bends round and then straightens under the two traffic island bridges.
This short stretch is packed with fish ,especially during the colder months,
where roach and skimmer bags to 30lb are possible and is well match fished.
It also attracts large pike over 20lb and numerous smaller ones
so is worth the
effort between the regular matches.

The Marina island area is also a venue for local town events and popular
with the general public and canoe centre, therefore in the warmer months
there can be a lot of boat traffic and public.Events will be posted on here
if possible as it will become neccesary to close the stretch to fishing
for the duration of the event!

The Marina car park lies alongside the A54.
From the large Marina car park the angler follows the path behind Dockhouse
for access to the Dockyard and Rilshaw Meadows which produces quality
bags of bream, especially when the river is coloured and in flood.
Access can also be obtained to the Platts field and Ways Green section
by crossing the traffic island bridge and following the river bank round the back
of the houses, there is no fishing on this side until the marked pegs just before
the gate.
