Location & Parking
Over 5 miles of river plus side streams offering some of the best river fishing in the South. Huge Barbel and Chub are consistently reported in the weekly angling press from Throop. The stretch is split into three sections.
Beat One: Both banks, joining Bounds Farm at the top of the stretch and finishing at New Weir.
This stretch is generally quite deep and not heavily fished. Contains most species including very big Barbel, Chub, Roach, Bream and Perch.
All beats offer a variety of sport from catching dace and roach on light float tackle to all out specialist fishing for monster Barbel and Chub.
Float fishing with hemp and tares can offer excellent Roach sport throughout the Summer and Autumn.
Bread flake or Cheese paste for Chub. Particles, maggots and Casters are worthy baits for Barbel and Chub.
Don't rule out artificial baits if small fish keep stripping the hook.
Use pellets with care! It is very easy to over feed and pre-occupy the fish.
Strictly adhere to the permitted parking areas.
Maximum time in the same swim 24 hours.
No access during the closed season.
ALWAYS use adequate and well balanced tackle when targeting or expecting Barbel.
RDAA recommend no less than 6lb line with a suitably strong hook.
This section of the fishery joins our Bounds Farm fishery on the north bank.
Electricity pylons cross this water, please take caution.
