Open 16th June to 15th March
The Society controls several miles of bank along the Suffolk Stour. Fishing starts upstream at Wormingford,
Further down it starts again at Wiston Mill Pool above Nayland right down past Stratford St Mary.
Along the way the river varies from being fast and shallow to slow and deep, and therefore supports a wide variety of species.
Dace and Chub exist in good quantities throughout the river with the Chub occasionally reaching 5 lbs.
Also to be found in the faster stretches at Nayland and Langham are a number of Barbel, which have been caught to 6 lbs.
In the deeper stretches can be found Bream to 8 lbs, Tench and some Carp well into double figures.
Autumn and winter fishing at Nayland and Stratford can be very rewarding for Roach, with individual fish to 2 lbs possible.
Pike are present throughout and provide good sport for the roving angler with fish close to 20 lbs.
The River Colne at Fordham is also under CAPS control.
In most instances, parking is limited, and nearly all stretches involve a walk across fields etc. As a consequence, access for disabled angled is severely restricted.
