Power Station and Fletchers Weir Fields
Access is via Long Lane which is the road first right after the Lord Ted pub roundabout. Go straight over the mini roundabout until you reach the river.
There are 65 permanent pegs installed 30 yards apart, using flat Matlock stone in the form of steps to accommodate varying water levels. Pegs in the Newark dyke (from 14- onwards) are less affected by flood conditions due to the largest volume of water passing over the weir.
The largest Barbel known from this stretch weighed 15lbs. 2oz. Carp to 25lbs. plus has been caught and a large shoal of Bream inhabits the stretch. Roach, Chub (to 6lbs.) and Perch predominate. Barbels are increasingly being caught all along the stretch.
