The river rises in a field that was part of the site of the Battle of Naseby in north-western Northamptonshire. The parish of Naseby lies across a watershed from which streams also flow to the rivers Avon and Nene. Flowing east past Desborough and the Eleanor cross at Geddington, through the grounds of Rushton Hall, 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
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).
