Ouse Angling Preservation Society Permit holders have access to fishing on most of the Sussex Ouse between Goldbridge weir near Newick downstream to the river around the southern end of the Hamsey Cut about a mile and a half north of Lewes, a distance of approximately twelve miles.
There is, in addition, fishing on the Bevern Stream upstream from the old railway bridge near Barcombe Mills to a point about a quarter of a mile upstream of Clappers Bridge at Barcombe Cross.
The fishing is mainly single bank with the river being tidal as far upstream as Barcombe Mills.
The Society owns and rents fishing rights on the river downstream of the Anchor Inn (north of Barcombe Mills) and shares waters between Goldbridge and the Anchor Inn with Copthorne and District Angling Society.

An Ouse Angling Preservation Society permit allows access to all of C&DAS’s waters. Please see the C&DAS website – click here – for details of the stretches of the Sussex Ouse, plus lakes, that they control, and which are available to our permit holders under this arrangement.
