For those people who love to fish, there are very few places in the country better than Weymouth. There are a multitude of venues along the coast for sea-fishing, including Weymouth’s Pleasure Pier, Chesil Beach, Worbarrow Bay and Portland’s rocks, whilst the more adventurous can charter a boat from the harbour and head out into the English channel.
Coarse fishing is well-served too, with a variety of venues including Rosewall Camp-site, whose two lakes are full of Bream, Roach, Tench and Carp to over 25lbs. For those more interested in game fishing, beautiful wild brown trout and grayling can be caught at Southover Lakes, the River Piddle, the River Frome and from a host of Wessex chalk streams.
Weymouth is well served by angling shops, and as well as a host of well-priced equipment, they will be happy to advise you on where to find the best fishing.
