Just under a mile of Upper Ouse, north-west of Stony Stratford. Chub to 7lb, big perch, roach, bream, dace, pike and the odd surprise tench. This classic Upper Ouse section offers a selection of features. There are no hard paths along this stretch so less hassle with dog walkers and pedestrians. For a few hundred yards this stretch overlaps the opposite bank of Brush Mill. Access is from the free car park just inside the field gate at Passenham Village (signed Parks Trust Grazing area) where the river comes under the road. Please keep the gate closed and do not obstruct the farmer’s access. Passenham Meadow can also be accessed over the iron bridge at Brush Mill. Caution – be aware of overhead cables.
