Upper River Avon

Manningford is high up the Avon Valley in the Pewsey Vale. Smaller, wilder and more intimate than the river further down the valley, the pristine chalkstream waters of the River Avon are a delight for any river angler.

Ideal for a light outfit, the river is the perfect opportunity for classic sight fishing with both nymphs and dry fly. There is a superb hatch of both Mayfly and Hawthorn. The river has a natural head of brown trout and grayling, which are supplemented by carefully selected trout reared from the on-site fish farm.

The fishing is suitable for bank anglers or those who prefer to wade.

(Catch & release) Tuition and Guides available. Full or half day.
