River Ouse and Backwater, Eaton Ford, St Neots
This fishery is located in the Eaton Ford area of St Neots and has been owned by Luton Angling Club since the 1950’s it was once a basket willow plantation.
Since the closure of the old power station and the subsequent building of the current gas fired replacement, the river at Eaton Ford is very similar to the River Ouse elsewhere with chub and perch being more noticeable but good sized Tench still make an appearance and some great Bream catches can be had. Predator fishing is also good with Pike and Zander present.
The venue appears to have been over looked by members, possibly in favour of still water but recently Good catches of bream, perch, chub and pike have been taken at EF and plenty remain. Carp and Zander are known to be active in this stretch of the river we just need more members to make a visit and try to catch them! Night anglers would be particularly welcome as they would keep our itinerant otters and resident herons off our banks.
This stretch of river is subject to fairly heavy leisure boat traffic during the summer months.
The fishery is accessed via River Road in St Neots, Follow the track down past the Bowling Club and turn right between the Skate Park and Allotments where you will find the first locked swing arm gate followed by the second club gate at the entrance to our grass car park. Follow the tracks through the trees to the River and Backwater - Vehicles should not be taken past the car park in wet weather.
