River Servern

Kempsey, WR5 3, Worcs, United Kingdom

Kempsey has 24 pegs downstream of Worcester on the Lower Severn and is situated 3 to 4 miles from Junction 7 of the M5. This is one of our top waters and club members have had some fantastic catches from this water including many double figure Barbel, Roach to well over two pound, Bream to 9lb, Pike to 20lb+ and huge Zander. Other species include Perch, Eels and Chub plus the occasional flatfish from the sea that strays upstream a little further than normal.The Lower Severn water at Kempsey is a wonderful stretch of the river, very quiet with the Malvern Hills visible across the river. (See photo).  Parking is but one field away from the river (about 150yards). This may be further if wet weather is around. If in doubt, park sensibly around farm buildings and walk down the track.This stretch has an excellent history for throwing up big Barbel and there are also some big river Carp.One word of warning on this water, the banks are as is common on the Lower Severn, steep and high so care must be taken when getting down there, especially during wet weather.  Some take a rope with them for safety reasons and some wear an inflatable vest. We feel that it is only right that this is pointed out.The club now control the fishing on the upstream section of the Severn directly above our original Kempsey stretch, right up to the boat moorings. Access is from the original track to the anglers carpark, but in dry weather members are permitted to drive onto the bank of the new stretch to fish. When fishing the original stretch, parking is still in the first meadow. No access for vehicles beyond the signs on the original stretch.

Pike to 20lb
