Stockport now contains a wealth of available and quality river fishing. It's now possible to catch fish throughout the Rivers Tame, Goyt and Mersey.

Species that have been caught on these rivers include:

  • trout
  • grayling
  • barbel
  • chub
  • dace
  • roach
  • perch
  • bream
  • tench
  • minnow

The majority of fishable stretches of the River Goyt are controlled by Stockport and District Anglers’ Federation. Many other stretches of the River Tame and River Mersey are managed by other local angling clubs.
