Hi, i'm going to Bewdley for a few days next week i was wondering which stretch of the river is best. I'm mainly after barbel and chub.

Hi, Northwood section is upstream of Bewdley, blackstone and ribbesford being downstream, all good on the day, the river is 6ft up at the moment, you should have a chance if temps don't drop too much.

Re: River Severn Bewdley

Thanks for the reply, being a river novice what sort of weight would i need to hold bottom? I only normally fish the Anker which is local to me and that is pretty slow.

Re: River Severn Bewdley

The ea website still says the river is still about 6ftup, and forecast to rise further, should think 2 ozs would be sufficient, try and find a bit of slack and fish the crease if it's up that much, and take some meat always a good bet

Re: Re: River Severn Bewdley

Hi Dave

The Anker is my local stretch too, although I have never done too well on it - a few small perch. The stretch the other side of Polesworth is supposed to hold specimen chub and a few barbel though... operated by Birchmoor AC, do you know anything about this?

As for fishing in and around Bewdley, I've spent some time there over the years as my folks have a static caravan there.

I find upstream of Bewdley to be better for barbel and chub, my favourite pegs being 'the bridge' at Northwood and peg 9 at Trimpley, which is also one of Des Taylor's favourites - there's a little gorge about 18ft out, barbel hang in there and so long as you keep the feed going in you'll do well in the summer months when the flow isn't so fast - the whole area has been wrecked over the last few weeks and I believe the EA are carrying out work at Trimpley at the moment.

Downstream at Ribbesford produces good pike, the deep hole in front pf peg 110 on the KDA ticket being the best in my opinion.
