The OAPS Fishery


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.


The fishing is mainly single bank with the river being tidal as far upstream as Barcombe Mills.


There is, in addition, fishing on the Bevern stream upstream from the old railway bridge near Barcombe Mills to Clappers bridge at Barcombe Cross.


The Society owns and rents fishing rights on most of the river downstream of the Anchor Inn (north of Barcombe Mills).


Most of the fishing on the west bank of the Ouse between Goldbridge and the Anchor Inn is shared with Copthorne and District Angling Society.
