Park next to Ascot racecourse and follow the footpath (bitumen) down to the river.

 Claughton Reserve in

 Claughton Reserve in Bayswater ticks every box - can park right behind your spot.   Gentle chuck into the main flow and it's game on. Kings Meadow Reserve in Guildford is good as well, decent Bream under your feet against the boards.

Heirison island

 Herison island can work. Parking and u can find a spot in the shade and out of the breeze. U may have to move around to find fish but usually something on the chew.
