DescriptionSteep banks and fast flowing water mean this venue is best suited to the more intrepid angler. The rewards can be great however, with lots of barbel & chub of specimen proportions.

Cotheridge: From Worcester take A44 Bromyard Road through village of Cotheridge. Look out for access gateway on the left with BAA signs on. (This gateway is a short distance past the old access track) Through the gateway, turn immediately left parallel with the road then turn right onto the old track to the car park.
Special Note: Park only in the designated car park. Do not drive across the fields. Ensure that the gate is closed and locked after entering and leaving. The adjoining fields contain livestock so it is imperative that this instruction is adhered to.
NIGHT FISHING BY PERMIT ONLY.

Car park track looking back towards A44.
Over the stile from the car park to downstream section.
Footbridge over gully from car park to upstream section.
Just downstream of the car park, the banks are steep and access as challenging.
Further down stream around the bend access improves.
Just over the footbridge going upstream the banks are very steep and constantly being eroded.
There are some pegs just upstream from the car park, but access is steep, be careful.
Access and banks improve as you move upstream.
Further upstream, a nice accessible swim for a bit of float fishing.
Here is a photo of a salmon I caught at Cotheridge last Friday the 28th. I guessed its weight at approx 12-15lb but I may be wrong, it completely bent my landing net handle. Caught on ledgered bacon grill whilst fishing for barbel, what a shock! It was released alive to fight another day. May I say a big thank you to all involved in enabling us to fish this lovely stretch of water again, and a big thank you to the work party for all their fine work with new track, gate, fencing and stiles etc. I did have to shut all the gates in the fencing along the bank as they had been left open, not a moan, just letting you know.
