Tidal thames trout

August 5, 2009

Well a few days after catching our first trout ever out of the tidal Thames we go and get another. In the same spot, on a different tide. A similar sized fish, fought very well and we managed to get a few photos for you to see. I could have stumbled on the best free trout fishery in the country. I guess, despite Thames Water releasing tons upon tons of effluent into the river every year that it has an amazing ability to heal itself. Just imagine how good it would be if they stopped pumping the crap in there. I’ve got to say, I had the best week with Danny, and feel a little deflated now he has gone back to his mum’s. the great news is that he is back next week for more fishing fun. He currently has this obsession with Zander, which i think is going to be a tricky one on the Thames, unless anyone knows any better. If so, please get in touch.

This weekend sees the annual Stoney and Friends charity bash at Cemex Angling’s Yateley complex. Often great fishing, always great company and raising lots of money for Macmillan Cancer Support.  Tight lines to you all.


I managed to persuade Danny to release it, he wanted it for his dinner.

    That’s a great fish! Where from Singy? You don’t need to reveal your secret spot, but are telling me that’s a west London Brown Trout?

    Well done Danny. Even better for letting it go back!

    Release me!

    There is a debate going on at the moment on the CEMEX andgling forum as to whether it is a sea trout. It came from Richmond mate. 🙂

    Both were released

    Despite the general colour and lack of pink it’s a rainbow – browns don’t have those spotty fins…

    It does have a very spotty tail for a brown, but the general concensus on the forum is that it is a sea trout that’s been in the river a while.
