DORSET STOUR, THROOP FISHERY, BOURNEMOUTH, DORSET
IT’S already been a great season at this famous fishery, with numbers of big chub and barbel landed. As we move into autumn, however, the fishing should really come into its own.
If you are targeting the renowned Throop chub, the best areas to fish are the top of Beat Two between the weirs and the bottom of Beat Two by School Bridge. Small groups of big barbel can be found throughout, and often fall to pellets or meat.
It’s a great time for predator anglers to head to the fishery, too. The Mill Pool is full of greedy perch weighing up to 3lb and has produced some monster pike over 20lb in the past. A great day can be had roving with small lures.
