DescriptionThe river has two entirely different characters here. At Pershore, roach, chub & barbel can be found in water averaging 4-6 feet in depth. At Pensham, bream are the main species, also pike and zander. The water here is deeper and slower than at Pershore.

Alternatively vehicle access for BAA members is now permitted in the RB field alongside the river directly downstream of the bridge. Cross the bridge and drive towards Pershore, turn into the field through the gate just before entering Pershore (BAA code 3590, lock the gate after you when entering and leaving), drive across the field to the bank and park. To avoid making ruts in the field please drive anyway across it, don't all follow the same route around the edge. There is no vehicle access along the bank in the wooded section.

Red letter day!
Bumped into a couple of members at Nafford today and they showed me this picture. Local Angler Dave Cooke couldn't wait to get out onto the river, after checking on the BAA fisheries work plan on the BAA web site he noted that the Fisheries team had strimmed out the Pershore R/B pegs ready for the start of the season. Dave caught this scale perfect 12lb 8oz Carp at the end of the stretch and as you can see from the colour of his hands he was using red ground bait and maggot. Colin Townsend
What's caught here - pike Feb2016
Myself and Spud had a piking session in the down stream wooded area at Pensham and Spud took this 18lb beauty on a ledgered dead bait on the far shelf. I am sure we are going to see a 20 come from this venue before long. Regards Colin Townsend
What,s caught here - Pike Feb 2016
I'm a new member to the BAA and have been desperate for a long time to catch a decent pike. My biggest previous fish was about 4 pound caught on a plug. Anyway, Mrs. was at work Sunday morning so grabbed a few hours on the Avon at Pensham. My only fish of the session was this 17lb 40z pike, P.B smashed!! She took a herring head section, float - ledgered hard on the bottom under an overhanging tree! Great mornings fishing! Robaylen.
Whats caught here - pike Feb 2016
I though I would share this beauty with you. Fishing in the first meadow at Pensham I cast a frozen gudgeon deadbait to the far bank hard on the bottom and this old lady picked it up. She was 18-1/2lb equal to my PB. Colin Townsend
Zander on fly
What's being caught here? - Glyn Williams was trying his luck with a fly rod, not only was this his first zander but also his first "Z" on a fly rod. He did not weight it but estimated 6 to 7lb. August 2016.
