River Trent, South Clifton

Brief description of fishery:

Regrettably, SAA have lost the fishing rights to the section accessed via Coal Yard Lane. Please do not attempt to access this part of the fishery. Negotiations are under way to try to resolve the issue. The northern section of the fishery, accessed via Trent Lane, is still our fishery.

This picturesque stretch of the tidal R Trent is rarely fished. It is fairly isolated which you may consider either an advantage or a disadvantage, depending upon your preferences and expectations.

If surface conditions permit, cars may be driven downstream of Trent Lane and parked on the flood bank. However, they must be parked so as not to obstruct the footpath and to allow other vehicles to drive past. Under no circumstances are vehicles to be driven upstream of the gate.

Night fishing is allowed on this venue

The statutory coarse fish closed season applies to the River Trent (No fishing is allowed between March 15th – June 15th Inclusive)

Dawn to dusk  – Fishing times

Night fishing, which in this context means both fishing all night or for just a couple of hours after dark, is allowed on this venue subject to the following:

  1. You have purchased an SAA night permit (this is currently only available to those who have previously purchased one).
  2. You have sent a text message to 07943651992 stating your full name, your membership number, the venue and the date that intend to night fish. This is to show that the club is proving to adhere to the conditions of the lease and in addition the Club’s insurance requirements. Your health and safety is our No1 concern.

Church Lane – Turn off Church Lane into the track and you will see a gate with the club pad lock. At the end of this track is a triangular shaped parking area, opposite the old power station pump house.

Trent Lane – There is a limited parking area at the very end of Trent Lane and the path from the road along the flood bank to the upper stretch is a public footpath.

Members may drive their vehicles along the flood bank but only to drop off their gear. Vehicles must then be returned to the car parks. Please do not drive along the flood bank in wet conditions.


Turn off the A57 and onto the B1133 heading southward towards Collingham.

For the downstream car park, turn right onto Mill Lane which turns into Church Lane/ Follow Church Lane under the old viaduct until you come to a X bend, shortly after you get go past the school you will see the club gate on your right

For the upstream car park (Trent Lane) turn right onto High St, S Clifton and go straight on. After just over 1/2 mile, the metalled road ends and you enter the unmade Trent Lane. Keep going but take care. The lane ends at our gate just below the flood bank. Park carefully so as not to obstruct the track and gate.
