Angling Times (UK) - - MIDLANDS -

THE up­stream stretch of the Soar above Sta­tion Road Bridge holds lots of spec­i­men fish.

Run by Long Ea­ton Vic­to­ria An­gling So­ci­ety, the river here has deep holes, slow bends, fast runs and even a weir pool oc­cu­pied by chub, bar­bel, dace, perch, carp and pike.

On the slower-moving meadow pegs at the start of the stretch good catches of chub and sil­vers can be made on feeder or the pole. At the top end you can cross over the lock and fish the weir pool for chub.

The water is fairly shal­low and pacy here but you can en­joy a great ses­sion with fish to over 5lb, fish­ing a small stick float with pel­lets or a bomb with bread. You’ll have to travel light or take a bar­row as it’s a good walk to these swims.

£25 adults, £13 con­ces­sions, £8 ju­niors 0115 8492854, River Soar, Sta­tion Road, Keg­worth, Le­ics, DE74 2FR
