We have various stretches of the River which is roughly 4.5 miles to fish. It can offer different types of fishing from Fly Fishing to Trotting.
We stocked the river in August 2020 with over 22,000 fish going in, these were various species from Barbel, Chub, Dace, & Grayling
Map of the River Goyt that we have fishing rights for .
This Stretch is left bank fishing with good access throughout most of the length.
At the bottom of Brabyns Brow A626 in Marple Bridge, turn onto Rollins Lane and follow the road to the car park which can get very busy during the summer months.
Grayling , Brown Trout and Chub . Salmon and Sea Trout run the Goyt and there are known redds in the Marple Bridge area and further upstream.
Chadkirk is a stretch of left bank fishing at Chadkirk Country Park running from the new footbridge down to the end of the last field on the left hand side of the river . Mostly is accessible but perhaps a little more tricky towards the bottom end of the length.
From the A627 Otterspool Road turn into Vale Road and the car park is on the left after about 100 yards . Alternatively, from the A626 Stockport Road at the bottom of Rose Hill , Marple , turn into hilltop Drive. Some parking can be found here and then follow the path down to the lower limit of this stretch .
This is a good Grayling and Brown Trout water with a few Chub to be had in the deeper pools.
A short stretch of right bank fishing running from the bridge down to the end of the first field on the righthand side of the river . Access is relatively good with care . There are a couple of pegs of sort on the opposite side of the river which can be approached from behind the Hare and Hound Pub.
From Otterspool Bridge A627 turn into Mill Lane and park on the left by the Stockport Hydro Turbine

This is a stretch of left bank fishing with its upstream limit at the confluence of Woodlands Park and the down stream is Offerton Cricket Club . Access is good in parts but much of the river is lined with trees with steep banks but worth the effort for the intrepid angler .
Trout and Grayling as with all the river and of course is a run of Sea Trout and Salmon . This stretch has the benefit of re stocking of 7000 Roach , Dace and Chub during the winter of 2019/20
This stretch is a fair walk from whichever direction it is approached so travelling light is recommended . One option is to park in Woodlands Drive Offerton off the A626 Offerton Lane. There is a further limited parking at Holiday Lane , off Marple Road A626 at Foggbrook . Careful and considerate parking is necessary.
A left bank stretch of river through parkland running from Nab Weir at the bottom of Cow Lane to the downstream limit at Vernon Park . With the exception of the lower stretch where path erosion makes the passage sometimes difficult , access is generally very good with many pegs and a variety of swims to suit all styles of fishing .
This is also very popular with dog walkers so best not to leave your bait box unattended
Grayling and Brown Trout being the most numerous species. There is a good head of Chub which reaches a good size. Lately Perch and Eels have being making an appearance. It is expected that some of the upstream Silver Fish stocking will find their way down this stretch in the not too distant future. There are a few reports of the odd Barbel but these are few and far between . There will be large , old , fish the remnant survivors of a stocking 20+ years ago.
There is ample at this for fishing here . You can either park at Vernon Park end of Woodbank Park off Turncroft Lane or down past the Woodbank Community Centre on Little Moore Lane , off Turncroft Lane , Little Moor.
Pear Mill Stretch is right bank fishing running from the boundary fence of Pear Mill at the upper limit down to the New Bridge , New Bridge Lane B6104 , Portwood / Lower Bredbury . This is a very popular stretch of river due to the easy access and ample parking .
Until the recent instillation of the Hydro Turbine this stretch used to be a premium Barbel stretch . The Barbel seem to have largely disappeared from here but S&DAF are in negation with the EA to attempt to restock this venue . The usual Trout , Grayling and Chub are still there in numbers . Any other species which can be found in the River Mersey or Tame may occasionally make their way to this stretch .
