River Derwent

Haslams Lane, Derby, DE22 1, Derby City, United Kingdom

The association owns approx 1 mile of quality fishing on the River Derwent just north of Derby.
Access to the river is off Haslam's Lane, and is signposted "Derwent Valley Fishery". There is a dedicated car park at the site which is owned by Earl of Harrington AC who have 2 lakes adjacent to the river. Warrington anglers members are allowed to use the car park, and also are granted fishing on the 2 lakes (see Derwent Valley Fishery).
The river is known as for good winter fishing for grayling. Chub and barbel are also present in this stretch, as are most usual river species. The stretch also holds the odd carp and tench that have washed out of the lake during floods. Ledgering or stickfloat / waggler tactics work well here using maggots or casters as bait. Larger baits will target the chub and barbel.
There are approximately 25 proper allocated pegs on this stretch, which has been used as a match length. There is a canoe club at the lower end of the beat, which can provide a disturbance to fishing, but please respect the other river users.
