We have a stretch of the upper River Medway at Saint's Hill. The main species are chub,of which a considerable number have been cought over 5 pounds in weight and roach, which grow to a good size. There are also carp, perch and bream, as well as large pike. There are also a few barbel in our stretch, it being no more than a couple of hundred yards downstream of the area where t record barbel were caught in the 1990's. There is a variety of swims, making the water suitable for both float and leger enthusiasts. We keep this stretch of river well-maintained, and access is easy via steps cut at each swim. there is roughly half a mile of bank. Night fishing is permitted.
Fishing is not permitted during the Coarse Fishing Closed Season from 15 March to 15 June each year.
