Seasonal salt and fresh water fly fishing


Fishing the river Adur

  • Bass and Mullet Season on the Adur: The Bass and Mullet season on the Adur runs from mid April till late October. The season is kick started as the water temperatures begin to rise. The fish then start to leave depths of the sea and venture into the estuary either to breed or forage for alternative food. Then as temperatures drop in the autumn the fish then return back to the sea. One can then fish the winter months for Sea trout, providing you hold an EA migratory fish licence. Coarse fishing can be had nearly all year round on the upper Adur on the fly but you must get membership or a day ticket day from either or 
  • Trout Season:  Fly fishing for Brown and Rainbow Trout can be had all year round.

  • Licenses: Can be obtained at your local post office or online at the website of the
