The Parrett rises in Dorset near Crewkerne and flows northwards to be joined first by the Isle and then, just above Langport, by the Somerset Yeo. In its upper reaches, the Parrett is preserved for trout fishing. Below Petherton Bridge, weirs lead to a deeper and slower river with coarse fish becoming more and more predominant. Species include roach, bream, rudd, chub, dace, carp and pike. From Langport, the Parrett flows north-west to enter the Bristol Channel through a long estuary just below Bridgwater. Ticket facilities are good in the lower reaches. Rod Licence: WWA
