19 December (Part 1)

Chris Plumb


River Kennet - Thatcham

0915 - 1245

Bright with squally showers. AT 9ºC. River up a few inches with a tinge of colour.

1 Chub; 1lb 13oz. 1 Grayling; 1lb 5oz. 5 Roach, 2 Dace & 4 Brownies - an old warrior of 4lb 12oz & 3 parr fish.

My first visit here this season - mainly due to the fact that the venue has been closed whilst a new foot bridge across the Kennet was built. I usually consider this more of a summer venue so quite pleased with this morning's return especially as the river was sub optimal. Grayling in particular was a surprise - rare to see them this far down the river.

Recommended Comments

Looks like lots of tree clearance has been undertaken Chris, have the fallen trees upstream of the pic location been taken out too?

No - just that tree - think it was probably the people who's garden it was - as all the cut logs were on their lawn. Upstream is still a jungle - in fact worse if anything!
