Wallers Haven & Pevensey Haven

Wallers Haven

The Association share a stretch of this river with Southdown A.C. at Boreham Street on the Eastbourne side and from Middle bridge up stream. o locals the river is called a marsh drain but only after any very heavy rain does it ever flow in the summer, the water is some 20 yards wide on average with plenty of weed growth and marginal reeds with depths up to 7 or 8 feet, all the normal species can be found and in particular bream and tench which go to 5lbs.

For those prepared to put the time in there are more carp present than most are aware of with both common and mirrors being caught to over 20lbs with plenty of talk of several going over 30lbs and in the winter months the odd pike over 20 will also be caught.

Most baits like maggot’s worms and corn along with boilies for the carp are successful but eels can be a problem in the summer but these are often caught over 3lbs. Most used methods are float and feeder, and fishing in close to one’s own bank with light pole gear can often give good results. Like many venues early morning and the last few hours of dark are generally best.
