River Kennet, Sulhamstead

Members and Day Ticket Fishery.

This quiet fishery is set in beautiful surroundings near Sulhamstead, Berkshire. It is well worth a visit whatever your angling preference. There is about 1500 yards of canal and river to fish. The main species include Chub, Roach, Dace, Bream, Perch, Pike, Tench, Barbel and the occasional Carp and Brown Trout. The pace of the river is medium to fast. The canal section has no flow and offers good fishing when the river is in flood.

To get there: Leave the M4 at Exit 12. Take the A4 and travel for about 2 miles before turning left at signpost for Sulhamstead. Cross over three bridges and then turn right into a public car park.
Parking is available in the public car park only. There is a 6ft 6inch – 2 metre height restriction across the entrance.
Access:
The fishery is reached by following the towpath from the road, past Canal Cottage. Our fishery starts at the first stile (metal ‘kissing’ gate) and follows the River Kennet across a meadow for about 800 yards. At present the meadow is only grazed between April and October. Shortly after crossing the second stile (metal ‘kissing’ gate) we lose the river where it drops over a weir. From here the fishery extends for about 700 yards along the canal to the boundary board past the lock rejoining the River Kennet’s water course. You may fish both banks of the canal, accessed by crossing the swing bridge.

Beware of the power cables along the meadow section.

Day tickets sold in advance from the Treasurer 020 8777 9489. Cost: £5 for two rods (Seniors), £3 for two rods (Juniors, OAP & Disabled).

No night fishing
