FISH THE STICK ON THE TRENT AT BURTON
SUMMER is a great time to do a bit of stick float fishing for roach and perch on the Trent, and where better to head to than Burton, where anglers are reporting double-figure nets of silverfish?
A recent match held here saw the Bailey’s and Municipal sections produce double-figure nets of mainly roach to anglers fishing the float.
Access to the Municipal section is through the grounds of the Washlands Sports and Social Club, and anglers here can park behind their peg.
Pegs 7-13 are the best trotting pegs as they offer a steady glide. The Bailey’s section is accessed off Burton Bridge. The early pegs are the best bet here as they offer some far-bank cover which hold tench and bream in summer.

For a net of slabs, head to Broadholme Island and fish pegs 16-19 off the point of the
The stick float is a great summer river tactic.
