The Lower Itchen fishery is set amidst picturesque water meadows and has an abundance of animal, bird and insect life which creates an atmosphere in which to unwind from the stresses of life. The fishery offers primarily brown trout and salmon fishing. Night time sea trout fishing is also available later in the season together with excellent grayling fishing.
The river Itchen is rich in insect life, and in excess of three hundred species of invertebrates have been recorded on its main channel. Lower Itchen’s ecology of the surrounding water meadows is extremely rich, and provides the right environment for the abundant fly hatches. This commences with the Grannom, followed by the Hawthorn and Mayfly
