Upper Trent Info

I like a bit of a challenge, as i have never fished the upper trent and would like to catch one at least. I like the look of Ingleby, would anyone know who has the rights here? Or is it free fishing. This applies to both banks.

Oliver.. If you're feeling a bit naughty.. There's a stretch by the Burton Albion ground that is reserved for caravan residents and says no fishing.. But.. No one off the site fishes hardly and there's a few pegs. Its mostly very shallow and weedy but there are pegs that have been cut out and palleted that are slow and steadier and hold barbel. Biggest off there I know to is 13 plus. My best is 8lb 5oz from there.
