River Severn Description

The river meanders through some of the most stunning scenery in Wales. The river is a rain feed free stone river with a mix of runs, long riffles, glides and pools. The wading on the upper Severn is some of the easiest you will come across (very nice if you're a novice fly fisher ). The river levels are usually good as the river is controlled by Lyn Clewedog in the summer months and also the river drops quickly ...

Techniques & Tips

All techniques work well on the upper river Severn, dry, spiders, wet fly, nymph, New Zealand, Czech nymphing and French nymphing.

7-Day Forecast

River dropped back to a fishable height, still quite a cold wind, so you will have to try and pick your day.
