Avington Trout Fishery in Hampshire has three crystal-clear lakes and a carrier stretch of the world-renowned River Itchen chalk stream are Avington Trout Fishery’s trademarks. So too are the fish on offer – superb quality rainbow trout weighing from around 4lb up to double fish –  are stocked into the lakes, while the carrier stream holds wild browns and grayling. And all in the idyllic setting of the Itchen Valley, Hampshire.

Today, the lakes are fringed with marginal growth of sedges, flowering rush, yellow iris and marsh marigolds which provide cover for the stalking angler. There is also good shade and cover afforded to the trout and angler by large stands of trees including alder, crack willow, hawthorn and beautiful oak and London planes.

The lakes are stocked every day with high quality triploid rainbows which are all reared on site in the fishery’s own stock ponds. The fishery record rainbow currently stands at 28lb, a fish caught by Paddy Hill in October 2000. From late Spring onwards brown trout are also introduced.

The lakes are chalkstream-fed and the water clarity throughout the season is superb. In fact clear water stalking is possible even on heavily overcast days.

For this reason Avington is also an ideal venue for the beginner or novice angler as they can actually see the fish they are casting to which makes it so much more enjoyable and is a great confidence booster.

Rockbourne Trout Fishery is located in the New Forest just on the edge of the picturesque village of Rockbourne. The six lakes are spread over 55 acres of unspoilt woodland and pasture land with the river Sweatford Waters running through the valley and on into the Avon. The lower reaches of the river are classed as an area of outstanding natural beauty and  indeed Rockbourne is one of the most peaceful, secluded and beautiful spots to fly fish in the country.

Spring fed, crystal clear water provides abundant natural fly life and excellent opportunities for stalking trout. The springs feeding the lakes ensure near constant temperature and thus year round sport.


Woodington Lakes Trout Fishery
Off Romsey Road, 
SO51 6BG

Tel:  07849 530852

Here at Woodington Lakes we have three lakes, well stocked with (primarily) rainbow trout.  That said, we do also add brown and blue trout on occasion to mix it up.  Oh, and there is always a cheeky little perch to throw into the mix.  Our lakes are;  Spring Lake, Kingfisher Lake and the Leat.  We also have 430m of double bank fishing on the River Blackwater.

Spring Lake is where it all starts, the water level is held by natural springs that then feed through into Kingfisher Lake, the Leat and then the neighbouring Whinwhistle Coarse Fishery.  Historically, the lake was fed by an artesian well which provided a constant supply of fresh groundwater into the lake system.  Nowadays, this has unfortuantely dried up, but natural springs still supply the lakes keeping them cool and the fish healthy.  The island in the centre of the lake has two or three deep areas around it where the fish can often be found during the warmer summer months, or when the air temperture is very cold.  During ‘normal’ conditions, fish can be found closer to the banks, where they can be seen rising regualrly, especially first thing and just before dusk.

Kingfisher Lake is the smallest of our three lakes, with no obstructions around it.  It is therefore, ideally suited to the less experienced angler as long casting is not required.  Equally fed by its own springs (plus the overflow from Spring Lake), during the cooler months, the lake clears up nicely so as to allow stalking tactics.  As with Spring Lake, the island in the middle has a couple of deep areas around it where the fish can often be found.  If you are lucky, you may be treated to a flyby of the lakes namesake on its way upstream along the River Blackwater.

The Leat was a new addition to the site in 2006, it differs from both Spring and Kingfisher Lakes in that it is not gravel bottomed, as such the water appears murky.  Do not let this put you off though, as the clarity is better than you think and as such can provide some excellent fishing.
