SOUTHDOWN A.A. WATERS ON THE PEVENSEY LEVELS

The waters on the levels are all man made marsh drains containing Bream, Tench, Roach, Rudd, Perch, Eels, Pike and some Carp. All are subject to the statuary annual close season from 15th March to 15th June.

All have negligible flow in the summer months, while during winter, the levels may be lowered to alleviate flood risk when there may be some flow.

The Wallers Haven is the largest being some 30 metres or so wide in places with a depth of around 21/2 metres. Some areas are quite remote and require a lengthy walk to access them, but the effort can be well worthwhile as it holds some exceptional fish. Please note that night fishing is not permitted on the section downstream of Iron Bridge at Wartling.

The Pevensey Haven is smaller, being about 15 metres wide with a depth of about 2 metres and offers more shelter from the wind. The ideal venue for a spot of leisurely float fishing on a nice summers day.

Chilley Stream runs into the Pevensey Haven. It is generally very clear and has a prolific weed growth, requiring a drag in order to create an area in which to fish. With a width of about 12 metres and a depth around 2 metres, it also holds some great fish, but due to the water clarity, they can be a bit tricky to catch.
