The fishery consists of right bank fishing from the start of the University land boundary (off New South Bridge Rd adjacent to Car Park 4) downstream to where the river meets the sluice gates at Nunn Mills Rd. There is also some left bank fishing (mainly concrete bank) opposite the sluice gates on the other side of Nunn Mills Rd to the point that faces University Bridge.
Normal club rules apply plus please show respect for the University grounds and ONLY fish from those pegs cut out by NNAC and marked with a post.
NO night fishing is allowed (Dawn to Dusk only), NO fires. Please take your litter home or use one of the many bins on site.
In addition to our bailiffs UON Security staff will be patrolling throughout each day and may ask to see your club card and rod licence.

Car Park 4 on the UON Campus (New South Bridge Rd) is the closest to the fishery and is barrier controlled. You will need to speak to car park security via the intercom at the barriers to gain access. Say you are a NNAC member here to fish the river.
There is a small charge of £1 for parking all day on Saturdays and Sundays and £1 for every 3 hours during the week. On week days the car park will be very busy with UON staff parking. UON also has several ‘Open Days’ throughout the year, these are on Saturdays, the car park is free during the day for all during these events.
Please remember to PAY before you fish or you will be liable for a Parking Charge (it is your responsibility to make sure you PAY for parking). There are pay machines on the right hand side of the car park. The ‘RingGo’ app is also in use for this car park.
There is also car parking at the ‘’Midsummer Meadow’’ Car Park on the corner of Bedford Rd and Nunn Mills Rd, daily rates apply.
