The Huntspill River

The Huntspill River is a National Nature Reserve. The river is conveniently situated just 2 mins drive from Withy Water offering a choice of angling.

The waterway holds a large stock of coarse fish – bream, roach, perch and pike and has been home to many major fishing competitions.

Willow, rushes and lily pads to help alleviate any erosion. This has created a more natural pleasant sheltered environment for anglers to come and fish.
