River Kennet fishing

Fishing the River Kennet

A directory of fishing venues on the Berkshire Kennet.

The River Kennet arrives in Berkshire just north of Hungerford and then shadows and feeds the Kennet and Avon Canal into which it is absorbed regularly. The Kennet is a major tributary of the Thames into which it flows on the east side of Reading.

Fishing is available on the almost all the Berkshire Kennet, from a smallish river down to the swollen waterway that merges with the Thames. This provides many options for river angling. The angling venues along the Kennet hold barbel, chub, roach, dace, bream, and perch. Furthermore even some trout, grayling, tench and carp are present on some river beats.

The Kennet Valley is a complex network of waterways. The river and canal drift in and out of each other and the river splits into several subsidiaries at various points.

These angling venues listed here are mainly River Kennet away from the Canal. Many angling clubs bulk stretches of river and canal in the same area together as one venue, and for the purpose of cataloguing the River Kennet those fishing venues have been split and treated as separate venues.
