Chalk stream Fishing

River Wylye

The Wylye rises 5 miles south of Warminster and flows north to the town; this uppermost reach is sometimes referred to as ‘The Deverill Brook’. Turning westward, it flows for another 16 miles to join the Nadder just below Wilton, shortly before the latter reaches the Avon at Salisbury a mile or so further on. So, to be exact, the Wylye is the Nadder’s tributary rather than the Avon’s.



This is a lovely beat on the River Wylye between Salisbury and Warminster in the tiny hamlet of Fisherton de la Mere and has been in the same ownership for many years.

For what is regarded as one of the smaller chalkstreams, this beat on the Wylye is surprisingly deep, wide and fast. The fishing is mostly from the bank, though a pair of waders for the very productive Hatch Pool are recommended.

This beat is ideal for one rod or two friends together. There is a comfortable rod room and car parking adjacent to the river.
