Knightwick, River Teme

Knightwick on the River Teme

Follow the A44 from Worcester towards Bromyard/Leominster. Cross over the River Teme at Knightwick, take the first left-hand turning off the A44, just after the bridge signposted Suckley/Alfrick/Lulsley. As soon as you’ve turned left you need turn left again, signposted to Alfrick Lulsley. After about 600 yards, look for the KFAC sign on a gate, on the left hand side, indicating the entrance to the fishery. KFAC members access the fishery via the steel gate into the field and in dry weather can drive right down to the bottom of the hill and park by the river. In wet weather it’s advised that you park just inside the gate at the top of the field. Cattle and sheep will often be found in this field, so please make sure the access gate is securely shut at all times when not in use.

The upstream hedge of this field marks the top boundary of our stretch. To access the rest of the fishery members should walk along the river downstream. A sign at the bottom of the fishery will mark the bottom boundary. Please help to protect our fishery. Make every effort to ask to see the membership card of anyone fishing this water. There are no day tickets to be issued on the bank but a limited number of daytickets can be purchased from the Club Secretary in advance of fishing. The opposite bank is fished, so please avoid setting up directly opposite or immediately downstream of another angler.

This right bank (looking downstream) stretch of the River Teme just south of the village of Knightwick is an angler’s paradise. With Buzzards soaring overhead and Kingfishers darting low along the river, this is an idyllic stretch of the middle River Teme. With almost every type of feature an angler could look for in this mile long stretch of water, be that deep bends, glides, shallows and snags, this stretch is ideally suited to the roving angler, but with good dry weather access to the river bank, even those less energetic amongst us should be able to find some easy access to the water. Night fishing is permitted, so anglers targeting Barbel and Chub should be well catered for. The stretch also holds Grayling, Roach, Dace, Perch Trout and Pike. With regards to the Grayling and Trout, Kinver Freeliner AC members have been granted permission to fly-fish this stretch during the traditional coarse angling closed season. Please take every precaution necessary if you decide to wade this water. A wading staff and lifejacket are recommended and make sure you have your EA rod licence also.

Looking downstream from the first meadow, just below a cattle drink, the river rapidly changes from a deep steady glide to a fast broken stretch of water and this sets the scene for the rest of the fishery. The cattle drink here is occasionally used by cattle & sheep so please ensure that a free area is left, should the animals wish to come down for a drink or be prepared to move. Walking downstream into the next filed, there is a narrow track along the edge of a small coppice, which then opens up into a long narrow field. This area has reasonable access to the waters edge, thanks to the presents of the cattle and sheep that help to keep the vegetation down. Both bank have a number of willow bushes along the waters edge, which are sure to hold fish in low clear conditions. With long glides and fast broken areas in between, this stretch will be idea for either the float of feeder fisherman. Continuing downstream into the final field, the river swings first left then right and after a short straight, right again, down to the bottom boundary, which is marked by a KFAC sign. This area has some lovely deep bends & snags and looks extremely 'fishy'.
