DescriptionAlmost a mile of fishing spread either side of Telford Bridge on the right bank. Noted for the number of salmon caught each year but also with excellent coarse fishing. Barbel, bream, chub & carp of specimen size have all been caught from this prolific water.
Underdale: Entering Shrewsbury from Birmingham, turn right on Monkmoor Road for 1½ miles to traffic island then taking Telford Way direct to bridge. Parking in lay-by near to traffic island.
