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.
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.
