Phenomenal days fishing!
I just thought I'd let you know of a phenomenal days fishing that I had today at the very wet and muddy Severn Stoke section on the Severn. I had 10 roach over 1lb including my new PB of 3.4lb. I had 7 bream including two of 3.5lb, one of 5lb and my new PB of 8.8lb. I had 3 big perch one of which was 1.5lb and a handfull of small silvers.....I only wish I'd have put my keepnet in but I'm estimating a bag of just over 40lb for the day. Two PB's in one day...What a fabulous day on the river! Cheers, Ben Keen.
Pool Quay chub.

Centre pin chub.
Bailiff special with a special centre pin and trotting tactics, one of many with the odd barbel. Upper Severn Bailiff Ann Wood.
I have also attached a couple of photos from a session last Tuesday 5th October when we fished the left hand tree lined bank at Grimley, opposite the properties on the other bank. We both had 5 barbel each, with two being doubles and others between 6-9lb each plus other silver fish. My best barbel was 10lb 14ozs and the bream was 6lb 3ozs. Tony Gowers
Comfortable day at Lindridge
I have to congratulate the Fisheries team for the swims they had cut at Lindridge, the one I fished was the most comfortable I have found on the river for many years, (picture attached). I had 3 trout around the 1lb mark and a small chub, all fell to maggot feeder down the margins. My mate fished the flyer, in front of the car park and his best fish was a 4lb chub, with lots of small fish. I had forgotten how annoying the gudgeon and minnow can be when fishing maggots, even when trotted down the river! Still it is a good sign to be seeing smaller fish in the river and in good numbers. Tony Gowers.
