Tench Fishing in the South West

Andy Frances

Staff member

I'd love to find a new tench lake close to home (Chippenham, Wiltshire). I used to fish Great Sommerfords but this has been taken over and converted into a carp syndicate in recent years :rolleyes:

Bowood is another favourite but they are currently full.

Does anyone know of any options that I might try? I'm not after monsters and prefer to float fish for them and am very happy catching 3-5lb fish.

I know there's Cotswold Water Park but I know absolutely nothing about any of the waters there...

Please feel free to PM if you'd rather.

Thanks in advance,
