Throop FisheryControlled by Ringwood & District Anglers Association Throop Fishery is over 5 miles of river plus side streams offering some of the best river fishing in the South of England. Huge Barbel and Chub are consistently reported in the weekly angling press from Throop which is split into three sections.
Throop Beat 1Both 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.
Throop Beat 2Probably the most famous Beat and most heavily fished, it covers both banks from New Weir down to the Spur Road Bridge. Generally much shallower than Beat One with lots of opportunities to spot fish in the Summer months. Huge Barbel and Chub are to be found in this stretch which also produces Carp to 30lb and Bream to over 10lb.
Throop Beat 3Both banks from the Spur Soad 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.
