River Colne Brook, Wraysbury

Venue Description

We have the Colne Brook from Coppermill Lane beside the railway station down to the road bridge over Staines Road at Hythe End, approximately one and a half miles in length  There are various depths from fast shallows, to pools of five or six feet. Most of the river is tree-lined and can be fished from either bank, the width varying from fifteen to twenty feet.

The river holds good Chubb up to 6lbs, Barbel up to 14lbs, Bream to 10lbs, Carp to 20lb, Tench, Trout to 4lbs, Eels, Pike, Perch, and good size Dace.

The Close Season applies on the river, so no fishing from March 15h to June 15th. Night fishing is allowed and seems to pay dividends.  The river repays persistence.

No Day Tickets are available. Members Only, but members can buy Guest tickets but must accompany the guest.
