River Colne – Denham

River Colne – Denham

General description

With two sections to choose from, the gravels and upstream of the golf club, anglers can find total seclusion or fish in a more social location. The upstream section is currently overgrown and unmanaged, this was due to the HS2 ‘environmentalists’ camp but with their eventual removal and HS2 themselves finally vacating the area we will be looking to reinstate fishable areas over the coming seasons.. This area is a veritable paradise with nothing to spoil the serenity apart from the occasional screech from a White Egret or the drumming of a woodpecker.

The central gravels allow for all types of coarse angling, whether that be rolling a lump of luncheon meat into the barbel’s lair, or running a delicately presented stick float through the stream. The fishing here has resulted in “personal bests” for many anglers. We will also be working on opening up further swims downstream of the footbridge all the way to the confluence with the Misbourne. Flooding has stopped us doing this in the close season.

Opening Dates: 16th June – 14th March

60 Swims
A very diverse stretch of River with long deep glides dropping to fast flowing gravel shallows. The central section contains a weirpool where the river diverges into the River Frays which can also be fished.

With HS2 finally vacating the upstream area we will be working hard to open up new swims.
