Wood Lane, Colber, Durrant

From Wood Lane downstream to Sturminster Mill at the end of the 'Durrant' stretch the river runs slow and deep with lots of roach, big perch, pike and bream with a few good tench and the occasional chub being caught. When the weed clears in autumn the shallower stretches below the footbridge at Colber and the river between the mill and Town Bridge can be very good for roach.

Update 12th June 2013
The car park at the end of Wood Lane is now open. Please do not park on the grass and approach the parking area only on the newly-laid track next to the hedgeline. The small track by the gallops to the right is not to be used for access by vehicle or on foot.
The car park is EXCLUSIVELY for S&HAA anglers. Please display your membership booklet in the windscreen.
Other car parking is available along Bath Road above the Colber stretch ie the middle length of this part of the river. More parking near the Recreation Ground and at the mill for the lower reaches of this area.
