Re: Quieter Avon stretch

There's Marlcliffe, turn right at the sharp bend in village and follow your nose down track to the river. Easy parking. For barbel I think most blokes go downstream towards the weir, though not many pegs that way I don't think. I have had barbel from the pegs right next to the car park but usually go upstream a bit towards Bidford.

In general I fish for whatever swims past and don't target a particular species as such, and always weekdays so it is quieter. Parks Farm on the Evesham by-pass is another haunt, you do have some traffic noise depending how close to the bridge over the river you are but have the place to myself most times. Park next to river but not necessarily by your peg. BAA sign on access gate downstream side of the bridge.

Wood Norton, between Evesham and Fladbury, pretty deep here but easy parking and a short walk to the river, there is a BAA sign but the entrance is a bit concealed and easy to fly past., I usually miss it first time. Been the only one there in the past. A couple more access points between here and Fladbury but not sure what it's like, again, blink and you missed them.

Fladbury....have been twice this week, downstream of the bridge, plenty of pegs and only 3 or 4 more blokes there so not busy, virtually park behind your peg. Mainly small perch but a tench a whisker short of 4lb 8oz and a similar size bream. Quite a few boats the one day I must admit, not that it's a problem. Bidford RB was mentioned in another post , quite right it is a reasonable walk, especially if you carry loads of gear, but have had this place to myself as well .

Re: lindridge, eardiston access

This can be frustrating, always a good idea to check the BAA work plan on the web site to see what work has been done if going anywhere that may be a challenge. I seem to remember in one BAA handbook, not sure about the current one, some stretches of the Teme described as for the '' intrepid angler '', which I would interpret as nigh on impossible, but as they have commented in the past, they try to cater for everyone Of course if you haven't seen a place before it is a gamble anyway.

But also it does seem that it is money not best spent to be paying to rent a stretch that has very few or at times no fishable pegs, on the odd time or two I have fished the Teme pegs have been at a premium, and of course it is wasted money if you have a long journey and find you can't fish.

Nevertheless the BAA does offer tremendous value, though I am lucky in having the Avon within 15 to 20 minutes. Wish they could get some River Arrow, a good stretch with easy parking ? Some nice chub and barbel in there.

Re: Above or below ?

Agreed, I always thought below the bridge would be downstream. seems obvious to me.

Re: River Levels

Came over the Avon at Evesham yesterday [ Parks Farm ] and it was looking ok. Looked at Bidford on the Farsons Digital Web Cam site today [ real time video ] again the Avon, it was up but ok,certainly fishable, not bad at all really. It can of course rise quickly. Will probably do Marlcliffe or Fladbury over the next 3 days, it's wide and fairly deep so should take the water and the rain is decreasing over the next few days. Just glad to get back on a river......The Farsons site is very useful, having a number of cameras at various points on the Severn and Avon among others, I use it a lot if rivers are likely to be very high, saves a wasted journey.

Re: Are there any clubs I can join to fish BAA waters?

My previous post didn't really answer your question. I think what you were asking is 'are there any clubs affiliated to the BAA'...None as far as I know. Cheers.
