Chalk stream fishing

The English chalk streams are famous for their trout fishing and rods on the best known rivers such as the Test and Itchen, and indeed many other chalkstreams, are highly sought after and difficult to come by.

This site aims to help people know about chalk stream trout fishing and where to find it. We have text descriptions of each of the main trout rivers and you can find these, either by going direct to the river name in the right hand panel, or by looking on a county by county basis in the left hand menu.

We have also included a page that describes what a chalk stream is and another that explains how best to fish them.
