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 Three: Both banks from the Spur road bridge down to and including part of the tidal stretch of the Stour.
Again, offers opportunities to spot fish in clear conditions with the possibility of producing enormous specimens of Barbel, Chub, Roach, Bream and Pike.
There are also some very big Carp.
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.
An appropriate landing net must be carried at all times.
Limited parking is available at the golf course.
Please park behind sheds, where indicated.
Strictly adhere to the permitted parking areas.
Anglers may stay no longer than 24 hrs in the same swim.
ALWAYS use adequate and well balanced tackle when targeting or expecting Barbel.
RDAA recommend no less than 6lb line with a suitably strong hook.
Electricity pylons cross this water, please take caution.
