“Half mile on the right bank. Average depths to 10′ with bream, chub & roach. Good for pike & zander. In winter fields are flooded and you need to detour around edges to get to river. A fence/stile separates the two fields between the car park and river which you will need to lift your gear over.”
“A delightful little river, fishes best when the Severn is in flood and late in the year. Perch, roach, chub, barbel, pike, eels and even carp have been caught on the stretch. This fishery also includes a few pegs on the Severn immediately downstream of where the Salwarpe joins.”
“Even flow and regular depth averaging 6-8 feet. Bream, chub, roach, pike, barbel & tench can all be found here. best methods are; swimfeeder, stick float and waggler, with maggots the best bait.”
