Nottingham Angling Association
With over 2,500 members Nottingham AA needs a lot of water to satisfy the masses and they have it. In fact so much that it would be pointless to summaries for you here, as I do for most fisheries, giving you the option to go there or explore further on the internet. I will just give you a link to fishing on the Attenborough Nature Reserve, rivers Trent and Maun, Grantham Canal Sowbrook, Thurlby Gravel Pits, the river Soar the Erewash Canal and more.

For disabled anglers there is a lot of water suitable for people with mobility issues however Beaston Canal with concrete walkways and Sowbrook Lake with 6 dedicated platforms for wheel chair users are best.
Membership is very reasonably priced with reductions for over 65s, disabled and juniors. Day tickets are avaible for some venues.

After a good search there does not appear to be much trout fishing going on in Nottinghamshire. Colwick Park may have some locations where less mobile anglers can fish. Anyone know of any locations please let us know.
