Chartres River


Located on West Falkland, the Chartres river is best known for its consistency, deep runs and pools. The river rises in the southwest foothills of the Hornby Mountains and flows westwards for around 25km (15 miles) to Christmas Harbour, running through grassland which provides easy bank access. Chest waders are useful on some parts of Chartres River. In places where wading is not possible it is an advantage to be able to cast the full 30m (30 yards) of fly line.

Accommodation is available at Crooked Inlet Farm and Port Howard who will advise of access arrangements.
