River Thame Fishing: the ultimate guide to angling venues

A quality guide to fishing in the River Thame

A directory of angling venues on the River Thame in Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire. Part of a thorough guide to River angling in the Thames Valley area.

The river rises on the edge of the Chiltern Hills to the north of Aylesbury, then flows through that conurbation before heading south west past the town of Thame into Oxfordshire. Subsequently, from there the river flows westwards past Shabbington and Ickford before turning south near Wheatley. After this point the river flows past Cuddesdon and Chippinghurst, on towards Stadhampton, continuing south until finally it joins the Thames near Dorchester-on-Thames.

Angling on the River Thame is mainly by season ticket, with fishing controlled by local clubs. However, at Thame, Chiselhampton, Drayton St Leonard, and Cuddesdon day tickets may be bought from the controlling angling club in advance.

The River Thame offers fishing on a small river for species such as pike, chub, perch, roach, dace, barbel, bream, and additionally the odd carp and trout.
