Kennet and Avon Devizes

Post by EdNash »

Well everyone, it has been a few years since I posted on here about the good old Kand A in the Devizes AA area. A good start to the season (even though it is open all year here) .
Early on in lockdown stagnation and pollution hit the town stretches badly. Many parked up poorly maintained boats leaking diesel and other boater detritus.
This has now thankfully cleared and the canal is fishing extremely well, but if you are planning to visit make sure it is not in a really hot spell as oxygen levels plummet. Early morning or evening are best when the boat traffic dies down.
Some large (34lb) carp have been caught at The Spar pound Bath Road. Down the bottom flight of locks the carpers are in abundance but they will let you squeeze in. Any pound right down to Foxhangars is good, some quality tench and great bream up to about 4lb. I catch most on bread or luncheon meat (no tins on bankside please).
Come and have a day out, it's rather good and west from the town wharf rarely fished at all.
Toodle pip, Ed Nash.https://devizesaa.org.uk/

After recent rain the canal is fishing superbly. The fish are hungry as it is still rarely fished. Treat yourselves to a day on the K and A, don't forget the boats though, early or late is best. Ed
