We consider capillary laminar fluid motions on an inclined plane and study spatially periodic surface waves with fixed periodicity on the line of maximum slope $\alpha_1$ and in the horizontal direction $\alpha_2$. Actually, we provide a sufficient condition on Reynolds and Weber numbers, and on the inclination angle, named condition (C), in order that the Poiseuille flow $(v_b,p_b,\Gamma_b)$ with upper flat free boundary $\Gamma_b$ and with periodicity conditions on the plane, is nonlinearly stable. Under condition (C), the perturbed surface $\Gamma_t$ is bounded for all time, and the free boundary Poiseuille flow is stable.
