Chalk stream Fishing
The Meon, is the most easterly of the Hampshire chalk streams, rising at East Meon and reaching the sea in the Solent 15 miles to the south.
In many respects it is a smaller version of the Itchen, just as clear but perhaps a little faster flowing. It is very varied river, which reflects the patchwork nature of the farmland. Within a typical half mile section there will be gravel shallows, deep pools, open meadows and woodland.
The lower sections used to be famed for sea trout;
less so today but they regularly run to Wickham Mill and above. The prime
trout fishing is from Wickham to West Meon, with a highly distinctive
and abundant wild fish population.
