Lavendon Manor Farm River Ouse

This stretch of the upper Ouse is comprised of two large hay meadows and a heavily wooded length offering a variety of challenges to the angler. It is accessible from the B565 road linking the hamlet of Cold Brayfield, near Turvey and the town of Olney. The entrance is a cart track situated in a dip in the road adjacent to a disused sewage treatment works. Cars may be parked in the small fenced area at the end of the track. Night fishing is allowed.

The water holds some very large specimens of different species. The water presents classic upper Ouse fishing with a series of deep pools and shallow glides. Although heavily weeded in the summer months, many swims are fishable throughout the season. The previous tenants claimed to have caught barbel weighing up to 17lbs from the stretch. To date, our members have caught carp to 21lbs, barbel to over 10lbs, perch to 4lb 2oz, bream to over 10lbs and chub over 7lb.
