River Avon in Batheaston

St Saviours Road, Bath, BA1 6, Bath and North East Somerset, United Kingdom

Members only - River Avon in Batheaston

The little triangular stretch of land on the right bank downstream of the Toll Bridge opposite the weir is where you'll find the best fishing. The potential is great, even if there are only three swims. There's a lot of water to fish in, and it's noted for having nice barbel, pike, and other Avon species.

The A4 from Bath to Chippenham is the best route to take. From the main junction, take the 'Batheaston' sign and then Toll Bridge Road to the right. Because parking is few, use caution when crossing the Toll Bridge. The Toll House serves as a gateway to the fishery.

Newbridge, the River Avon

Non-members can purchase a day ticket. At a cost of £5 a day, they must be purchased before going fishing. For members, fishing is free.

This section of the river is as excellent as any in the south-west, if not the entire nation, with plenty of bream, roach, hybrids, and chub for match and pleasure anglers, as well as monster pike for specimen fishermen. Bream weigh 4 to 5 pounds on average, although catches over 100 pounds are not uncommon. In addition, the amount of excellent roach (1 pound or more) is outstanding, with several 2 pounders taken each season.

Competitions are fished on a regular basis, therefore members should keep an eye out for "Waters Closed" signs at tackle stores or on this website.
