Fishing at Eastridge
The fishery has 5 beats varying in difficulty and is run on a syndicate basis. Corporate days are also available, please contact the managing agent for details on availability and price.
The wildest of all the beats, no stocking takes place here. An abundance of wild fish can be found here amongst fast flowing water and a number of clean gravel riffles.
Upstream of Wraggs Hatches, up to the confluence of the Aldbourne Brook and Bridge. An excellent pool and riffle sequence with some interesting in river features. Pleasant views over the surrounding water meadows make for a very scenic beat.
Known as the home beat, sections of deeper water ideal for holding bigger specimen fish. Slower flowing water can be found here making for some very exciting dry fly fishing, especially during the early months of the season.
The keeper's favourite beat, prolific weed growth, long flowing meanders and gin clear water make for the prettiest of chalkstream fishing. Various carrier streams can be found on Beat 4; for the stealthy fisherman these can be very productive.
Slower flowing deep water, the best of all the beats during the month of May and early June. When the sun shines bright this beat will continue to produce fish. Some deep holes and tree cover create fantastic grayling water, ideal for nymphing as of 1st of July.
