23-year-old Daniel Andre Tande of Norway claimed the World Champion title in the flying hill individual competition, finishing 13.3 points ahead of Stoch.
Home favourite Richard Freitag was third in the individual event.
The fourth round of the competition, originally scheduled for four jumps over two days, had to be cancelled due to strong winds.
"I knew that I was able to jump even further (...). I was preparing for the fourth round and suddenly I got the information that it is called off," the Polish ski jumping star told reporters.
Stoch added: "Then I felt a slight disappointment. Yet I know that there is nothing to complain about."
A team competition at the 2018 Ski Flying World Championships in Oberstdorf is scheduled for Sunday.
