If you are thinking of taking short boating breaks in Oxfordshire then it may be that you are wondering about the type of activities that are available to you. Fishing is a popular pastime in the county and no matter which type of fishing that you enjoy there is something for you.
You might want to pay a visit to Blenheim Palace. While the non-fishing enthusiasts might want to look around the house and grounds, there are coarse fishing facilities in the lake there. The lake is filled with tench, perch and roach if you are visiting in summer. Angling enthusiasts can hire a boat and as the numbers are limited you will not be competing with vast numbers of other fishermen. The estate also has a trout fishery on Bladon Lake where you can catch fish that weigh up to 8 pounds. With the option to fish all year round those on Short Boating Breaks in Oxfordshire can simply buy one ticket to fish in a number of spots on the trout lake.
There are a number of angling societies in the district for angling enthusiasts who are on short boating breaks in Oxfordshire which should be a first port of call for information on fishing in the region. The Gerrards Cross and Uxbridge District Angling Society can give you information on the different areas that you are able to fish and the relevant permits that you need.
Further information can be obtained from a number of other sources including the many fisheries that are based in the area and from the tourist information offices which can be found in most towns. Fishing from your boat is always a possibility but you will need to check that you have the right permits and that you are not in the way of others while you are doing it. For safety reasons you should never fish from a boat that is moving.
