The club are pleased to announce a new stretch of the River Severn at Montford Bridge is now available to members. The opposite bank to our Bicton stretch has not been fished for over 2 years but thanks to our local river bailiff team we have negotiated the fishing rights for our members making the River Severn & Canals membership even greater value at just £40 per year.
Access to the beat is via a small 3 car parking area that is no more than 20 yards from the river and it is then completely flat running to the downstream limit at the head of the island and the upperstream limit at the entrance to the campsite. This will no doubt appeal to the less able angler who wishes to park close to their peg and not have to trek across muddy fields to reach the river.
Fish stocks will of course be the same as the opposite bank so anglers can expect very large chub and barbel, roach, perch, pike and dace are expected to be the main species for the coarse angler with grayling, trout and salmon providing sport for the game angler from the nearby River Perry which feeds into the lower limit of the Bicton stretch.
With a very famous downstream neighbour who's 'Passion for Angling' is known throughout the angling world you'll be fishing a very sought after stretch of water. The owner has agreed to partner with the club on the understanding that the members treat the venue with the utmost respect and work in harmony with the farm and its equestrian interests.
There are a few water specific rules that must be strictly adhered to at all times;
Gates must be left as per the gate specific signage.
Livestock have right of way.
Strictly no dogs.
Cars must be parked so as not to restrict access for tractors and farm machinery at all times. If the car park is full then members must not park their vehicles causing an obstruction and alternative parking must be found. Permission has been given to drop your fishing tackle off at the car park area then return your car to the over spill car park in the paddock at the top of the track.
No vehicles beyond the car park area.
Small parking area very close to the river ideal for the less able angler.
