Lower Severals & Avon Castle
Venue Name: Lower Severals & Avon Castle
A stretch of the Hampshire Avon of approximately 3/4 Mile.
The lower Severals stretch starts where the Bickerly millsteam joins the main river.
This stretch offers some excellent trotting swims of varying depth, with the bottom boundary meeting the Avon Castle stretch.
Avon Castle is far more sheltered than Lower Severals with heavy bank side vegetation throughout. Featured in an episode of Go Fishing with John Wilson, offers excellent Barbel and Chub fishing with some very big Bream reported.
