The Middle Level rivers provide some of the best coarse fishing in the country and are regularly used for various National Championships.

The Commissioners issue Notes providing further details of the fishing facilities.

Of the major watercourses of the Middle Level, some, such as the Old Nene, are regarded as riparian owned and the fishing rights will normally be vested in the relevant land owners.

Others are owned by the Middle Level Commissioners and details of our current fishing tenants are set out below.   In addition there is free public fishing adjacent to March Town Bridge.


Many Middle Level waterways have public footpaths along the banks, which are relics of old towpaths.

The Hereward Way long distance footpath also crosses the area. Some public cycleways run across or alongside Middle Level property.
