Access for both is down Millstream Lane (see Dove map Car Park 22). After prolonged rainfall the railway under-pass can flood, so drive through with care. We hold rights from the railway bridge down to the Dove. Holding the same species as the river but of a smaller size the Fleam can provide good general fishing especially when carrying extra water or with a bit of colour (can be better in winter). The better pegs are on the same side as the track / pool making access easy.

The pool is just 60m from car park and is a pleasant place to fish with its reed fringed banks. Due to flooding the pool holds Chub and Dace as well as Carp, Bream, Roach, Perch, Tench and has produced 20lbs + Pike for many years. The depth decreases from 5’ at the car park end to 2’ at the far end.

All the usual methods work but float fishing is better because of the silt. It can be hard at times to wean them off the plentiful natural food.
