Fishing on the River Severn

Fishing on the River Severn
 

The River Severn (Welsh: Afon Hafren) is 220 miles long making it the longest river in Great Britain (354 kilometres). Rising in Wales (N Powys) the Severn flows into the Bristol Channel. It is a fair salmon river with spring salmon in March/April and May. Average size good. Decent trout and grayling in upper reaches, but river noted chiefly for coarse fishing, especially for chub in the upper reaches and barbel in the middle river. Shad run up river in May and are taken on rod and line, principally at Tewkesbury Weir.
