Our Waters

River Wey

Woking & District River Wey
The Association controls most of the fishing on the river Wey from Old Woking to Ripley. The Wey is a river of many moods, from fast gravely runs to slow meandering stretches. It contains most species of coarse fish and lends itself to all methods of angling. Be it trotting a stick float or pole fishing, waggler or feeder fishing, spinning for pike or legering for carp, it is all here.

Large bags of fish are frequently taken by the pleasure angler while quality fish of most species fall to the specimen hunter. If your interest lies in match fishing there are a few matches held throughout the season on our river fisheries where good weights are often recorded. Incidentally, the heaviest weight ever taken in a match from the river Wey 75lb 8oz, which consisted of large Bream, came from our stretch of the river.

We also have some small streams, which despite their size can produce some excellent winter Roach and Chub fishing.
