There is limited availability of season guest tickets for the East Stoke fishery. This fishery is a prime stretch of the River Trent, about ¾ of a mile long, and is particularly noted for barbel, chub, pike and roach, as well as other species such as river carp and dace.

The Society maintains high standards and guest tickets will only be granted to anglers who have successfully attended an interview, and who agree to abide by Society rules while on the fishery. The most important rules are listed below, but you should note that there is no night fishing – see ‘Fishing Times’ below.  The cost of a season guest ticket is £50. Access details will be made available to successful applicants. Please note that guest ticket holders are not members of the Society and have none of the rights of members.

If you are interested or have any additional question then please send your details and/or questions using the  ‘contact us’ form on the web site.
