The River Ise is a river in Northamptonshire, England and a tributary of the River Nene.

The river rises in the very field that hosted the Battle of Naseby at the north-western tip of Northamptonshire. Flowing east past Desborough and the Eleanor cross at Geddington, through the grounds of Rushton Hall[1] it then turns south and passes Kettering, through Wicksteed Park, past Barton Seagrave, Burton Latimer and Finedon before joining the Nene just south of Wellingborough.

Fishing on The Ise[edit]

The Ise contains many varieties of coarse and game fish, including roach, perch, barbel and chub. It is also the only watercourse within Northamptonshire to contain grayling (thymallus thymallus).
