Most Essex camping waters have fishing seasons. As such, many rivers and streams and some lakes have special rules
Are you new to the Essex Thameside region or looking to find some new lines? Let us dial you into some of The River Thames finest fishing on the Estuary.
There are plenty of great angling marks around this area.
The sea wall defences around Tilbury Fort and the World’s End pub offer a range of places to fish from. Flatfish – mainly flounder and sole – are caught to worm baits, and bass and silver eels will be caught here in the summer. Peeler crab is the best bait for them but worm baits and mackerel strip will also catch fish. In winter cod and whiting will be caught here with size 1/0 – 2/0 hooks in a strong pattern being the best choice as they will allow the smaller whiting to be caught but can also handle a larger cod. Mixed ground area with clean snag-free sections and some parts where gear will be lost. High tide is the time to fish this mark.
