River Stour from Canterbury east.
Posted 04 January 2005 - 01:16 AM
Don't know if anyone can help but I live in the Folkestone area of Kent and fancy some winter river fishing. The Stour at Canterbury is my nearest river. Has anyone fished it before? I understand that that much of it is controlled by a club. But that there are day ticket areas.

Two stretches they have which are day ticket, pay at the water, are at Grove Ferry and Plucks Gutter.
Both not too far from Folkestone by car.
I have had good catches of roach and chub at both venues in the Winter, with the odd bream.

Believe NOTHING anyones says or writes unless you witness it yourself and even then your eyes can deceive you
There is only one opinion i listen to ,its mine and its ALWAYS right even when its wrong
Its far easier to curse the darkness than light one candle
Whitby scallops caught by scottish boats best that money can buy,the nearer the shore they're dredged the better they taste

Another section worth checking out is at the end of Willow Close.
Another part of the stour worth a look is the section that runs through Ashford right next to the station it contains some big chub and roach here is a link to a fishing report on the river I posted on maggotdrowners
if you scroll down the page you will see 2 posts titeled "small stream fishing at lunchtime"
hope this helps you, if you need more info let us know

"Even a bad day of fishing is better than a good day of work."
I know the joy of fishes in the river through my own joy, as I go walking along the same river.
What do you think if the float does not dip, try again I think.

I fished there last Winter with no problems.

I will try and track down these spots. Tried to go on the C&DAA site for guidance but it's been defaced!! I've fished the canal at West Hythe but not Iden Lock. I will try and find it. Thanks again.
