WRIGHTS MEADOW, RIVER STOUR, ES­SEX

Angling Times (UK) - - WHERE TO FISH -

The Stour was once seen as one of the finest match rivers in the coun­try, and bus­loads of an­glers would travel from Lon­don to fish here dur­ing the 1970s, par­tic­u­larly for its bream and roach. This stretch of river once held the Bri­tish record bream, weigh­ing in at 12lb 14oz. The area known as Wrights Meadow can still pro­duce big bream, with the weir pool at the head of the long stretch a worth­while bet. Try pre­sent­ing a ground­bait feeder across to­wards the row­ing club jetty, where chopped worm, caster, mag­got and corn will all score. The stretch above the weir known as Pecs Meadow is a bream hotspot. Con­tact: Just-Fishin, 01787 313882 Post­code: CO10 1WH
