Bruce, you could do a lot worse than buy a Derby Railway Angling Club season ticket. For about 45 there is prime barbel and chub fishing on the Trent at Shardlow, about 2 mins from junction 24.

Should you wish to venture a little further afield some great stretches on the Dove at Tutbury and Scropton for chub and barbel.

Regards,
Dave.

I am sure there is loads of fishing within casting distance so to speak? Derbyshire and the peak passport scheme after all is not that far away.

A hop on the M1 will bring you very close to Rutland and Eyebrook reservoirs?

Or you could travel and hour up the A52 and have a guest ticket with me in May on this little gem!

You should join the Erewash group via Mick Martin (Trugg) and make it all appear before your eyes.

Thornton is not far.

The soar is chub water plenty of it around kegworth, personally I'd head off light and go walking soon find areas that clubs don't own. Big your best bet is local tackle dealer, they would help out.
Only know Northants for free waters still working out leic and north leic.
Plenty of chub spots to be found even on the tinyest of back brooks.

It's a small world Bruce, that place it right on Crown Bend, some of the best floatfishing water on the Trent.

You are still spot on at Castle Donnington though, the DRAC water of the Trent runs right through there. It's off the beaten track and not a stretch I fish but there are some corking barbel come out from arounf the old power station.

Where to start is the question. There is so much quality fishing within almost a stones throw of Castle Donnington, it is difficult to know where to start. Previous contributors have only just about scratched the surface. If you want to fish a small lowland river with both stocked and wild brown trout , large chub, grayling, roach, dace and some excellent pike water for fly and spinner then contact Gopsall Fishing Club, google their website. 340 a year with over four miles of double bank fishing, so lightly fished I doubt you would ever see another rod on the water. Twenty minutes from Castle Donnington.
