Fishing in Newbury

Information about angling in Newbury and surrounding areas including Speen, Woodspeen and Donnington; covering fishing venues, tackle shops, supermarkets, and local weather. Part of a guide to angling in Berkshire.


Newbury lies in west Berkshire, west of Reading and south of the M4, within the Kennet valley. RG14 5AU.

Angler amenities

In Newbury fishing is dominated by the Lambourn and Kennet Rivers, and the Kennet & Avon Canal. The Lambourn offers fly fishing around Newbury on day and season ticket and a lake at Donnington Grove provides trout fishing.
The canal and River Kennet supply river fishing around Newbury and are controlled by angling clubs so fishing is by season ticket only and complies with the usual coarse season.

Newbury has no fishing tackle shop, but there are some in the vicinity. To the south east at Greenham Common there is a tackle store which specialises in sea and predator angling: Rok Max Sports Fishing, Venture West, Greenham Business Park, Thatcham RG19 6HX.

To the east at Thatcham fishing tackle is available at Thatcham Angling Centre, 156 Sagecroft Rd, Thatcham RG18 3BQ

Newbury has several supermarkets to stock up for fishing trips. There is a Sainsburys in the middle of the town at Hector’s Way, RG14 5AB; this is not far from the tackle shop. In the north of Newbury there is a Waitrose on the A4 Oxford Road RG14 1NB. In the east of the town there is a Tesco on the A4 London Road RG14 2BP. A Tesco Extra is present in the south of Newbury at Pinchington Lane RG14 7HB.
