River Stour - Canterbury


Although much of the River Stour is controlled by clubs, fishing is free within the Canterbury City limits. This stretch of River contains Chub to over 5lbs, good sized Roach as well as Pike and some Barbel.  The best approach is to fish with one rod and keep moving either a float or light ledger rig works best.  Its worth starting early in the day and fish from first light until mid morning when the paths can get a little crowded.  However if you are happy to walk out of the main town there are some more peaceful stretches of River to try.
