The Huntspill River

 

 

The Huntspill River is a National Nature Reserve on the edge of the Bristol Channel. The river is conveniently situated just 2 mins drive from Withy Water offering a choice of angling in the local area.

The waterway holds a large stock of coarse fish – bream, roach, perch and pike and has been home to many major fishing competitions.
Constructed in 1940 this ‘manmade’ river has been enhanced with willow planting, rushes and lily pads to help alleviate any erosion. This has created a more natural environment for wildlife and offers a pleasant sheltered environment for anglers to come and fish.
Barn owls breed in the area using
boxes erected by the Hawk and                       
Owl Trust.
