The Severn has a vast array of tributary fishing, ranging from the small upland streams of the upper catchment to the more leisurely rivers of Shropshire and Worcestershire and the small, relatively short brooks at the very lowest part of the system in the Forest of Dean. The Teme, one valley north of the Lugg (Wye tributary) is a famous trout and grayling river, as are its own feeder streams such as the Onny, Rea and Clun. Further north, upper catchment streams such as the Cain, Vyrnwy, Banwy and Mule all provide the small steam wild trout fishing enthusiast with some wonderful opportunities.

The Forest of Dean is an area of ancient woodland to the east of the lower Wye. Three of its trout streams, all of which flow directly into the Severn Estuary, have been available via the Passport for a few years and are popular among small river enthusiasts. Despite their size, the Cannop, Bideford and Blackpool brooks are consistently high in the average catch statistics. You won’t find monster trout here but the sheer numbers that inhabit them is impressive.
