The much older neighbour who introduced me to the Kennet back in the 60s said that the town center stretches were quite productive for Barbel historically.
Remember fishing beat 4 on an R&DAA ticket during the winter years ago. That was quite close to the town center, probably no chance of parking now

Wouldn't attempt to fish there Dave, it just makes me think if any fish were up in these areas.
I used to fish behind the Forbury Gardens, by Huntley & Palmers back in the early 70's Dave, and although I never caught any myself the occassional barbel did come out so who knows ?
