River Hamble - Near Botley - SO32 2DA
Water Information & Updates
A lovely quiet and un-spoilt stretch of the upper Hamble which offers both fly and coarse fishing for those anglers who enjoy travelling light. It contains a good head of Wild Trout, Grayling, Chub, Roach and Dace and also enjoys an annual run of Sea Trout. The river runs through a mixture of farmland, water meadows and woodland where fish can be found both in the shallow glides and deep pools. Most years see a substantial mayfly hatch in late spring.
