About the venue
Apart from the section just below Winkton Weir, this lower section of the fishery is very lightly fished. Any angler fishing this section can feel like a pioneer. Hard work will be required to find the fish, but they are there. Travelling light may prove the best bet for searching out swims. The stretch holds chub averaging 4lb with a few which are a lot bigger. There are lots of pike down towards the willows next to Coward’s Marsh with fish reported to well over 20lb. Barbel are there too (in relatively unknown numbers), but fish have been reported to 12lb+. Roach, dace and grayling can also be found at Winkton.
