I was on google maps looking for fishing spots in the ouse and I found further up river there is a split near a farm by the looks of it just wondering if that's fishable

It's not. One side of the bank is Hassocks A/C and the other is Ouse angling (or Ouse preservation).

@Lewes born and bread - So actually, yes it is fishable. As long as the correct permit and rod license have been purchased prior to getting your rods out and having a dangle.

Whilst there is no public footpath along the river north of Hamsey, the landowners seem happy to allow walkers all the way up to Barcombe Mills. Your only problem would be if you encountered the OAP “water bailiff”, a self-appointed twat modelled on Mr Hodges out of Dad’s Army. Just remember, and remind him if necessary, the OAP may have fishing rights, but don’t own either the river or the bank. If he tells you to F off, as is his habit, return the compliment !

What the hell is Rambler rambling on about? What a twat you are. @Barney, lewes angling club also have shared fishing rights on the east bank just about hansey cut and also the east bank below the road bridge at Barcombe Mills.
And i would like to say the old bailiff and the EA are the ones who have helped to keep that part of the river so well managed ( with fishing licence fees),that it makes it possible for you to freely stamp your grotty hiking boots along those paths.What an arse...

I totally agree with Fisherman about the EA and the ‘old bailiff’- I presume he means Jim the Fish, who is, and always has been, a complete gent. My encounter was not with Jim, but a small, ratty man with a grey beard. I think he owes allegiance to only the OAP, not other river users. I understand this chap also dislikes canoeists, wild swimmers and dog walkers. Maybe he only likes fish!

It sounds too close to the Nevill to be Leicester Road or the Pells, but it's very loud! more
