The River Blithe

The Saracen’s Head Angling Club has two stretches of the River Blithe, one stretch on the Lower Blithe and the second on the Upper Blithe.

Both stretches of the River Blithe are not stocked and are a good natural mixed fishery.

The predominant species are chub, generally quite small – up to 1 lb but in the Autumn and Winter big ones up to 4lb move into the stretch.  There are trout the majority about 10” – 12”  with the occasional bigger one up to 2lb.  Other species include Dace, gudgeon, roach and a few grayling.

There is a good hatch of Mayfly which persists over several weeks.
