The farmer has had difficulty turning off the busy road into the entrance due to poor parking by BAA members)

BAA Publication Map
Entrance to the BAA car park off the A442 at the upstream end of the fishery. Please park in the car park and don't drive across the fields to the river. Walk along the bank of the Worfe on the edge of the field to reach the Severn. The fishery also includes the River Worfe LB from the car park down to the Severn, somewhere to try when the Severn is in flood?
Upstream end of the fishery, the banks here are steep and not easy to fish.
Further downstream near the boundary between the two fields. This fishery can be reached by parking off the A442 near the road access to the two fields (without blocking access for the farmer), and walking down the boundary between the fields towards the river.
Downstream a bit in the second field.
Some fast water alongside the second field.
Sam Wootton quite a new member making the most of is card, good to see young anglers fishing the rivers. He came with me to Apley on Saturday afternoon and had this 7.5lb fish in perfect condition, using pellet on the feeder. Also had 3 good chub to add to his catch, fishing the section straight in front of the oak tree middle car park. Picture by Craig Williams.
