D and E Sections

General Description

D and E Sections run from beyond the Grafham Pumping Station on the River Great Ouse, to the Black Overfalls Weir Pool and are on the boat channel from the River Great Ouse to the lock that feeds the Lock Cut section of the Triangle. They are rarely fished due to the walk involved, and the society doesn’t maintain the swims so you might need to cut your own, but they have produced some good bream, chub and pike for those who make the effort.

The council maintain the path, alongside the river – The Ouse Valley Way. The London Anglers Association fish the opposite bank

You are now walking TheOuse Valley Way, The Mill Stream, which runs from the Black Overfalls Weir Pool to the bridge, is on your left.

Continue on the The Ouse Valley Way alongside the Mill Stream, passing the Black Overfalls Weir Pool; New Cut is now on your left. Continue alongside New Cut until you reach the concrete bridge; cross the bridge, then turn left and follow the path over a small wooden bridge to the gate next to the river.
