The Silver way is a cutting from the main river excavated by
the Brewery to provide ease of transportation when the river
was navigable in bygone times.
The access is the same as for Andressey, from the car parks
behind Burton library.
There are no defined pegs on this cutting.
Target Species:--- Bream, Roach, Carp, Pike, Tench.
Starting at the mouth where it meets the main river opposite
Broadholme Island, this is known as bream corner. It can be
fished from either side but probably the best is from the trees
on the swimming pool bank. Pads to the left and right give way
to deep water of approx 10 feet deep right in front. From here
to the footbridge and beyond, very shallow water with lots of
lily pads is the order of the day. Above the Abbey are some
deeper swims on the opposite bank. A bit of a stalking water really not the usual match type water
at all. Specimen anglers may find it interesting though. In years to come when other more
important work has been done, this neglected piece of Coors water may receive some attention.
NOTE fishing is not allowed in the Cherry Orchard opposite the garden of remembrance.
