River Teme, Bransford

A half mile stretch of the River Teme on the left bank upstream from Bransford Bridge (grid reference SO 804 532) near the The Fox Inn (postcode WR6 5JL) on the A4103 main Worcester to Hereford road – see map below for details. There are approximately 17 pegs available across two fields which are tended regularly to maintain access throughout the season.

This beautiful river rises in Wales, crosses the border coursing down through the Midlands to meet up with the River Severn just south of Worcester. The river contains a good head of barbel to double figures and also specimen chub, along with dace and occasional perch, bream, grayling, trout, salmon, pike and the odd stray carp which also frequent the water.

The River Teme was designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest (S.S.S.I) in 1994, and supports an abundance of wildlife such as otters and kingfishers. There can be few more peaceful places to enjoy good fishing and the wildlife of rural Worcestershire.

This stretch can also be fished by non-members on a day ticket, available from Worcester Angling Centre (Brickfields Road) or Alans Tackle (St Johns).

1) A typical, low clear summer level is around 0.4 metres on the EA gauge (so all pegs available).

2) With levels of 0.4-0.7 metres, all river level ‘platforms’ and cut steps are still accessible.

3) Above 1.0 metre on the EA gauge some of the platforms start to become submerged, although most of the pegs are still fishable.

4) Above 1.5 metres almost all of the river level platforms are submerged with some of the lower cut steps also under water, but many of the pegs can still be fished from higher levels on the bank.
