This stretch of The Thames, north east of Lechlade, is nearly two miles long. A popular stretch holding Chub, Bream, Roach, Perch, Pike, Dace and there have also been reports of the odd Barbel. This stretch of the river can be busy during the summer months with boat traffic but if you can survive them the fishing can be excellent.
Parking is in layby. Fishing is Kempsford side bank downstream. Upstream lefthand bank is three fields up to ditch on the North bank. Upstream right hand bank is approximately 500 yards on the southern bank.
Take A361 from Highworth to Lechlade. Just before Lechlade turn left to 11th Century Church. Parking is opposite church on concrete. Walk through black gates, this takes you to the river. We also have fishing rights behind the farm which is accessed over the stile in front of Inglesham House. DO NOT walk through the farm.
This season (2021/2) we have a new stretch of River Thames at Castle Eaton. Access is through a kissing gate in Mill Lane and the stretch consists of three fields upstream of the road bridge. Parking is advised to be in The Street which is the road before Mill Lane as Mill Lane is narrow and residential.
We have acquired a stretch of the River Thames at Cricklade.
This stretch best suits a roving approach during the Autumn/Winter months
