Anyone know the different types of fish that can be caught in the pells? Also a list of fish that's in the Ouse (location as well if possible) cheers.

As far as i know...the main species in the Pells are Carp and Roach. You may get the odd Tench or Goldfish too.
The Ouse has Roach, Rudd, Dace, Bleak, Pike, Carp, Bream, Sea Trout, Brown Trout, Eels, Dabs, Grey Mullet, the occasional Catfish, possibly a few more fresh and esturine species.

Great cheers, do you know if the pells has any mirror carp in there? Also heard there was a koi somewhere in the pells but not sure if that's still the case... Someone told me some polish went netting there a few years back catching carp to eat?!

There's plenty of carp in there still....not sure if there's any mirrors but they go to about 8lb and fight well on light float tackle. There might be the odd Koi or goldfish which has been released from a garden pond.
As for the Polish....not sure but nothing would surprise me.

I seem to recall that you need both a licence and a permit. I think you get one from LDC and the other from the shooting shop in Cliffe High Street, the one with the heron in the window.

You'll need a rod license to fish in any freshwater pond or river which you can get from the post office or online from the environment agency. You'll then need a Pells permit which you get from the town hall. The river is free from Wiley's bridge down to the sea, although there may be the occasional stretch where it is run by a club so check first.

Rod license is £30 for the year and the pells permit is only £6.25, think it's from the bridge by the scrap yard to the sea is free fishing.

From what i gather, If you go up river from Wiley's bridge to the first Stile, that's where the free fishing ends and goes over to Ouse angling or something like that. However, there were no signs up last time i walked it. Further up by Hamsey cut, Hassocks angling club has the north bank and again, i thing the southern bank (Landport side) is run by Ouse angling.

Unfortunately, many people kill fish thinking that this way the reservoir will be cleaner. But this is wrong, every being needs to live somewhere. For fish, it is either urban reservoirs or aquariums. My tank is currently home to four fish and I plan to buy another larger one and increase the number of inhabitants. In fact, it is very exciting to watch how fish swim and hide from each other behind reefs, corals and live stones. I have also heard of fireworms that are fish destroyers, feeding on them and destroying these weak creatures. If you are interested you can read more
