River Cherwell fishing

A quality guide to fishing on the River Cherwell

Information about angling in the River Cherwell with a page for each venue, including fishery controller details, species present, and anglers map. Part of a guide to river fishing in Oxfordshire.

The River Cherwell is the most northerly of the numerous tributaries of the Thames. It enters Oxfordshire north of Banbury and flows southwards past Banbury shadowing the Oxford Canal which it feeds for much of its path. South of Banbury it flows between Adderbury and Kings Sutton, past Aynho, along the west side of Somerton, and past the western edges of Upper Heyford and Lower Heyford.

Thereafter the Cherwell continues its southward journey past Tackley on its west bank and Kirtlington to the east, then flows around Enslow and past Shipton until it arrives at Thrupp. At this point it the Oxford Canal and the Cherwell part company with the river flowing south eastward around the north and east of Kidlington, then swinging south to head under the A40 to Marston. Finally it then enters the River Thames at Oxford.
