  • Just been down the severn

    Took bread, dog biscuits, and maggots, and went for a walk to see what was rising.

    First place was Hamton Loade, and there was a few roach coming up straight away

    Then went upstream to Danery, didnt even see a fish

    Then went to quattford, would be a bit far to walk with me gear but looked nice, however, didnt see a fish, but did see what looks like a dead otter right at the side, looks like its been ate and chewed by somthing.

    Didnt know there were otters on this middle section, no wonder i seen hardly any fish, i was look for an are to pre bait for the 16th but might concentrate on a diffrent river now.

    Think this will be my last year of havin a BAA licence.

    Apart from some of the wierpools & a few chosen areas The Severn is a waste of time Early in the season
    Definately needs a bit of colour water & pace on it @ the moment
    May be able to find one or two Bream shoals on the lower River !!
    But you will realy struggle to catch many Barbel etc due to the conditions

      was in Bewdley on Sunday and I must say it was low, in fact I don't think I have seen it much lower under the bridge for a few years

        The Severn isn't what is used to be TBH. That's not good news about the otters though! Those things can decimate the local fish population.

        I tend to fish the Teme instead.

                How long as there been otters on the middle severn? What would eat one of them, would it be a fox or somthing, or another otter?

                    There's plenty of barbel and chub at berrow farm Col and I've had dace, roach and grayling too. I had a brown trout and a salmon kelt early this year too on breadflake!! Otters have territories of quite some range, so there shouldn't be that many in that 5 or 6 mile stretch surely??
