The Woking and District Angling Association controls most of the fishing of the river Wey from Old Woking to Ripley. A river of many moods, from fast gravely runs to slow meandering stretches with deep pools, containing most species of coarse fish, and lending itself to all methods of angling, whether you enjoy stick float or pole fishing, waggler or feeder, 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, ideal for the roving angler with a short quiver rod and a loaf of bread or a tub of worms.
