Christchurch Harbour

Looking South over Christchurch Harbour

The Harbour, Lower Avon, Stour and Claypool offer some of the very best sea trout fishing in England with the added bonus of an occasional Salmon. The whole area is nationally famous for specimen mullet and its quality bass fishing. Coarse fish are found in large numbers with roach and dace offering quality sport in winter. Large pike are found above and around Tuckton Bridge.

Carp up to 30lb in weight are caught along the towpath and bandstand area. The Lower Stour and Harbour are managed as a sports fishery where all species must be returned to the water unharmed. This is for the benefit of all, ensuring long-term sustainable angling which will benefit both the angler and Christchurch. Fishing “catch and release” is practised on all the major sport fisheries across the world, and is something the owners Sembcorp Bournemouth Water have decided to continue following consultation with various stakeholders within the harbour.
