Good sport on the River Sev­ern

Angling Times (UK) - - WHERE TO FISH -

IF THE re­cent RiverFest qual­i­fier is any­thing to go by, a visit to the River Sev­ern at Bewd­ley is well worth con­sid­er­ing this week­end. The match, held above and be­low the town bridge, fished its socks off with dou­ble-fig­ure nets re­quired to win all sec­tions.

It wasn’t just a ‘sit and wait’ af­fair for the big­ger bar­bel and chub which fea­tured on the day, as an­glers also re­ported good nets of roach, perch, dace and bleak.

Pegs up­stream of the bridge are run by Kidderminster DAA and can be fished on a day ticket. Where you have plenty of depth in­side you can catch on the float and even the whip, feed­ing cast­ers or mag­gots. The shal­lower pegs and those by the town bridge (free to fish) are bet­ter suited to feeder fish­ing for chub and bar­bel in nets top­ping 40lb.

PRICES: Free fish­ing down­stream of bridge un­til the con­crete ends, oth­er­wise £6 in ad­vance for BAA or KDAA wa­ters. The Dud­ley AS stretch is £6 a day, tick­ets on the bank CON­TACT: Bewd­ley Tackle & Leisure, 01299 403386 LO­CA­TION: River Sev­ern, Load Street, Bewd­ley, Worces­ter­shire, DY12 2AF RULES: No night fish­ing, no fires

Bar­bel and perch fre­quently visit an­glers’ nets.
