I went to sandford on Sunday. 4 out of the 6 swims I fished there during this season were underwater so given we’ve had more rain since it’ll be properly flooded very soon. Lock cut will be alright but I don’t really like fishing there.Canal up towards Kidlington is ok.
I was going to have a look at Thames at Sandford to see what that is like,
There’s some decent fish coming out of the canal at heyford but obviously that’ll be a different picture once the temperatures drop. Worth a go though as not much else to do is there lol
The Thames can fish very well when it's carrying a lot of extra water and colour, just have to choose a suitable swim.
Would be a challenge finding a suitable swim by the weekend the way it looked Sunday. Was emptying out of the sandford old channel with more power than it does out of Portsmouth harbour on a spring tide
