Upper Severn fishing report January 2022

First of all Ann the bailiffs and myself on the Upper Severn would like to wish all members a very happy and prosperous New Year.

After the floods of December and carrying on through until mid January it was not until the 15th when water levels started to get back to something like normal and with the river temperature very low, fishing is extremely hard with very few fish being caught. There has been small bags of silvers and grayling around Aberbechan /Abermule areas along with a few small jack pike to 5lb. Down at Pool Quay and Maginnis Bridge very quiet again with colour of river, very low temperatures an very few anglers out this month due to the conditions.

Can members visiting Maginnis Bridge if you haven't got a BAA sticker on back of your vehicle, please leave your handbook or some form of BAA I.D on dash board so our bailiffs can identify BAA members and not people who are illegally parking, it makes things very difficult at the moment we have got good parking facilities but no gated areas.

Moving into the last week of the month just what we needed, river levels and colour running perfect for time of year so the last week of the month has given us the best sport of the new year, cracking grayling being caught at Aberbechan and Abermule with some lovely silvers and chub to 4lb, down at Underdale there has been some small bags of silvers and small pike in the last week of the month, so picking up nicely, long may it continue .

Tight Lines everyone for February and keep safe.

Mike and Ann Wood Upper Severn area Bailiffs Powys.
