HALE PARK FISHERY is situated on the Hampshire Avon and lies on the edge of the New Forest National Park, between Downton, Wilts, and Fordingbridge, Hants. It is approximately 10 miles south of Salisbury, and 12 miles north of Ringwood.
The fishery is 2.5 miles long and both banks are accessible, giving 5 miles of fishable bank, there are 3 weir pools, and some side streams.
The fishery affords both game and coarse fishing for the entire year. For many years these beats were only salmon fished and coarse fishing was seldom practised. The fishery holds specimen chub and barbel and many members have achieved their “PB” in several species from these waters.
