River Gipping

River Gipping Fishing

SHARMFORD LOCK The fishing mainly comprises of silver fish, the odd Tench, Perch and Pike. The river gets weedy in the summer, clear spots can be found, although a weed rake is a valuable addition to the tackle bag, particularly when fishing for the Tench.

BRAMFORD The Bramford stretch is a favorite venue for the winter river fishermen of the club as it presents an ideal river environment for all river species with Roach, Perch, Tench, Bream and Pike being the main species.

SPROUGHTON The Sproughton stretch of the river Gipping Starts at the road bridge and progresses downstream past the old sugar beet factory up to the first railway bridge where the Ipswich Councils Stretch starts. It contains every species that a river should have although at times of weedy or low levels can be difficult to fish, but can be very rewarding for the dedicated angler.

ELTON WATER BANK Accessible from the 'Hadleigh Road Industrial Area. This is a prime stretch of the river Gipping with a large head of Roach, Tench & Bream, with all other species present at various times of the year. It seems to fish best at times of flow and colour but holds other surprises.
