Upper Severn fishing report September 2020
We have had another record breaking month with over 200 anglers coming from all over the country to the upper Severn and they keep coming back week after week, its fantastic!
The game anglers have had a very good month with salmon and sea trout being caught around Newtown down to Llandrinio with fish being caught to 16lb, we will not be naming particular stretches .
River running perfect first two weeks of the month after the high waters last week of August, plenty of game anglers about now with some nice brown trout and grayling being caught. One of our regular visitors Glen Irwin has been doing his roaming approach catching some nice brown trout and grayling to one and a half pound very nice fish indeed, with a lot of sea trout being caught to 5lb. Below the bridge the trotting anglers have been catching some nice bags of chub to 4lb, backed up with some lovely dace and roach.
I am very pleased to be giving you all the good news about the on-going bank work we are doing in this area, you can now walk all the way along Aberbechan/Penarth without having to go on to the canal towpath we have made a way through so you can now walk the entire lenth of the river bank creating another 15 different areas to fish along with lots more fly fishing access. All the hard work has been done by Ann, Barry, Will, Mark and our local contractor Adam Putson who has done a fantastic job, this is the first time in 20 years you have been able to walk along this stretch from end to end.
This fishery has started very well indeed with the trotting anglers. One of our regulars Tom he has been bagging up with dace, bleak, roach and chub to 5lb, big bags of silvers are a normal thing around this fishery.
The game anglers have been doing very well with trout to 2lb grayling to one and half pound.
The extra water on this fishery has really brought it to life with barbel to 10lb and chub to 4lb being caught backed up with some exellent roach on trotting tactics, Fly fishing has been producing some lovely brown trout to 4lb with grayling and chub also being caught .
The first two weeks of September on this stretch of river have been exellent with barbel to 12lb on ledgered tactics, good bags of silvers and chub to 5lb by Will Cracknell one of our bailiffs with some very nice grayling and a few pike being caught. River running perfect for time of year.
Will and Barry two of our bailiffs have been doing some fine work digging out new pegs above the bridge and building steps down to the river.
