Ouse (Sussex)

Rising near Horsham, the Sussex Ouse flows east before swinging south on its way through Sheffield Park. From there it winds on through Lewes to enter the English Channel at Newhaven. Tidal to a point some miles above Lewes, the river contains coarse fish and trout and also attracts a good run of sea trout. These fish begin running in May but are at peak in the summer months from June through to August. Ticket facilities are rare to non-existent though some chances exist for taking out seasonal membership of the controlling associations. Rod Licence: SWA
