River Sheppey


Hurn Farm to River Brue, Somerset, United Kingdom

Fishery Information

This stretch of the River Sheppey runs from Hurn Farm right up to the connection to the River Brue. The River Brue is a very exciting river to fish, and this little river that connects to it holds a lot of gems as well.

Often, larger fish from the River Brue come up this river to eat or find a mate. So it is a really good spot to dangle some bait in. Chub, carp, bream, roach, rudd, perch and even pike are in this deceptively small river.

What size do the fish go to?

The fish in this river are not massive, but there are loads of them. Most of the fish you catch will be a few pounds, but there are some double figure carp and pike around. Catching them isn’t easy, but this is river fishing; nothing is easy with river fishing.

What tactics work well?

The connection to the River Brue is always a popular spot for many anglers as you can catch fish coming and going. However, all of the low hanging trees on the banks make great spots to target. As all of the fish in the river are wild, natural baits work really well here. However, the carp do still take boilies on occasion.

What facilities are on site?

Day tickets for this amazing river can be bought from W.G. Grinter, Thyers Tackle, Somerset Angling, Viaduct Fishery and A M Hobbs.

Is parking available?

There is parking close by.
