Its still a fair walk from the station.You only get a couple of hours either side of HW.Flounders,bass,eels and some nice mullet,its a shallow estuary that your fishing here,but i have had some cracking sessions but that was a long time ago.
I think you can fish by strood station its only a few minutes walk,perhaps someone more local to strood can tell you where to fish how much of the tide you can fish.Species will be more or less the same but i belive you get whiting and codling there.

2 other places worth a try are Gillingham Pier and Sun Pier in Chatham . Both offer the same fishing opportunities , not too far away from their respective train stations and offer comfortable fishing .

Going to give away a secret here, as I'm back up north and unlikly to fish Gillingham pier again. Lived in Gillingham for 12mths. All the locals only fish the pier around the high water and only catch small stuff mainly pouting and the odd whitting. As it only fits about 10 people fishing ,there is not much room. Go down at low water you will have the place to yourself (maybe not after this). You will catch good flounders up to 2lb and the school bass tend to come up the chanel to. Good luck

Hi steve ive lived in strood for 32 yrs so fished most of it,if your going to be traving by train then your best bet would be around strood pier the problem is it is trolley graveyard right up to rochester bridge! if you cross the road tho theres a high wall,walk up a bit and your see some steps and a small building the fishing in front of said building is good most of the time lots of codling and whiting odd sole bass etc to be honest with you tho i dont rate day tides this far up the medway and i try to only night fish if possible. if not try chatham or go to rochester by train its only a short walk to the riverside, hope this helps a bit
