Trent Valley Angling (TVA) is managed by the Holme Pit Action Group. We offer membership to fish at Clifton and Lenton in Nottingham and Barton in Fabis, South Nottinghamshire. Our core aim is to respect the environment and the land we fish on and to promote good fishing practice. We are a "not for profit" group of local volunteers with a passion for angling, wildlife and the Trent Valley.

Improvements to river pegs and access. (1) pegs are being cut 14th July (may be 15th as well, and then every 2 weeks thereafter). (2) Over the next couple of months, further access improvements along the Weir Field, from the gas pipe peg to cherry island. Currently no vehicle access due to ground conditions. (3) starting 13.07.2021, ground clearance works are taking place at Barton Ferry (next to the caravan at the end of the right hand track). Due to heavy plant, the adjacent 'wood chip' peg will need to be closed.The track will then be repaired. We apologise for any disturbance or inconvenience during the work.
Holme Pit, blanket weed (filamentous algae): During the growing season, we will be treating Holme Pit with Excalibio which is a liquid barley straw product. It does not harm the fish or the fishing. You will be asked to reel your rods in for an hour or so.
