Club Waters

River Parrett

Our waters start at Huish Bridge and flow down through the Town, past the Bungalows and Cocklemoor. Try caster, maggot or hemp and tares for roach and caster or maggot for skimmer bream, perch and chub.

Tench and bream can also be found further down Cocklemoor, above the Pumping Station.

At the lower end of Cocklemoor, above and below the footbridge, chub will be found in the lilies and under the overhanging trees and bushes on the opposite bank. Maggot, worm or breadflake are worth trying for them.

Just below Bow Bridge, at the top end of the Stuckies section, roach, skimmer bream and chub are the main species. Maggot, caster or hemp and tares are the main baits used. Bread is worth considering as people feed the ducks from Bow Bridge. A chub of 6lb 2oz has been caught from here.

The remainder of the Stuckies section, down to the island, produces roach, perch and the odd larger bream. A waggler, fished shallow and tight across to the far bank, will often find small chub.

Below Stuckies Island, there is a good chance of getting among the larger bream. Maggot, caster or worm, over some groundbait, will often find a shoal of them.

Between the island and the railway bridge, there are some large pike. They can be a nuisance when steadily catching roach.

Our waters continue below the railway bridge, through sections above and below Combe and ending at the lock gates at Oath. Roach, rudd, bream, tench and carp get caught during summer and autumn.

Combe Lake

This lake was created by the Club in the early Nineties as a mixed fishery. There are plenty of roach, perch, bream, tench, crucian carp and some common and mirror carp. It is located in pleasant, peaceful, surroundings and is intended to provide variety to pleasure anglers. Combe Lake can only be fished by Season Ticket Holders.
