Whether you're a serious match angler or just looking for a leisurely day out fishing in Peteborough, the River Nene and our other waters will have you hooked on fishing.
The Peterborough and District Angling Association (PDAA) founded in 1875 is a friendly fishing club based in Peterborough that controls the fishing rights on the River Nene around Peterborough. The extent of this coverage is from the at Sutton village downstream to the "Dog-in-a-Doublet" sluice, where it meets the tidal Nene. Most areas of the River Nene controlled by the PDAA are clearly signed, and are available to be fished by members or visitors.
Although PDAA leases from local landowners and Trusts some of the fishing, it does in fact own large areas of banks in it's own right.
The River Nene contains a variety of species of fish including, Barbel, Bleak, Bream, Carp, Chub, Dace, Eel, Gudgeon, Roach, Rudd, Perch, Pike, Tench, and Zander, with some large specimens of most species.
The PDAA also controls The Gunwade and Overton lakes at Ferry Meadows Country Park, which in turn contain a large head of Bream (up to 10lbs), (Carp over 40lbs), Pike (up to 30lbs), and Zander (up to 14lbs), plus all the other species, found in The river Nene.
