The River Bourne is in places little more than a stream but can offer some excellent coarse fishing, particularly during the autumn and winter months when the river is in full flow.

The River Bourne rises in the west in the grounds of Windsor Royal Park and flows through Surrey where it meets the Thames at Hamm Court, Weybridge. For most of its length it flows through private land and is therefore unfishable, although easy access is assured around the Chertsey area.

Chub [to 5lb] and Barbel [to 6lb] are the main species sought after on the Bourne although there is a chance of the odd bream or carp along with roach, dace, perch and pike. Simple methods work well. Trotting a stick float fishing maggot will catch just about anything, whilst bread on a small ledger is deadly for chub and roach.

One stretch of the River Bourne with easy access [including 2 disabled friendly swims] is Abbey Park on Free Prae Road, near to the centre of Chertsey, offering a variety of slow and fast flowing swims. The Meads is another stretch close by which offers some excellent roach, chub and barbel fishing. Access is down Mead Lane, off Fordwater Road. There are two car parks offering free parking.
