This section is accessible from Watson Street behind the Tesco supermarket and down to the public car park by the old
pump house building. From here to the river is a flat tarmac walkway ideal for trolleys.
It has 33 pegs which may change due to seasonal weed growth which can be driven behind but in matches only.
The average depth of swims on the stretch is 3 to 5 feet.
Target species:--- Roach, Perch, Chub, Bream, Barbel
Starting at the upstream boundary peg 1 is in the shadow of the imposing structure of the Leicester Line railway
bridge. Sharratts is the widest (approx’ 50 yards) of all the sections of river Coors A.C. control. Pegs 1 to 4 are fast
shallow swims of 3 to 4 feet deep home to chub, dace and barbel. Pegs 5 to 9 smooth out because of slightly deepening
water until we come to the famous bream pegs on 9 to 13. These have in the past thrown up big bags of bream to both
pleasure and match anglers.
The next 20 pegs are quite even with bags of silver fish, roach, dace, chub, coming from any of them.
Please note that seasonal weed growth may restrict the number of fish-able pegs
