The Drift

This stretch of the middle Ouse is some 600 yards long and is little fished. Much of the stretch is tree lined and, as such, can offer some excellent protection from the wind on blustery days.

Roach are the dominant species with fish to over 1.5lbs and weights over 20lbs not uncommon. There is a monster shoal of bream that resides on the stretch with specimens to 7lbs present. Pike, Perch, Dace, Zander, Tench, Bleak, Eels and Gudgeon can also be caught along the whole length of the stretch.
