The Path of the River Teme
The Upper River Teme
The source of the River Teme is a small spring which rises in Bryn Coch quarry, located on the Kerry Hills, near Newton in Powys Wales.
The teme then flows southeast past the small villages of Beguildy, Dutlas, Llanfair Waterdine and Knucklas onto Knighton (Tref-y-Clawdd).
The river then heads east to be joined by the River Clun at Leintwardine in Herefordshire.
The upper River Teme holds brown trout and grayling as well as several coarse fish species.
The Middle River Teme
After Leintwardine, the teme flows east past the small village of Bromfield where the River Corve joins the flow, it then heads onto the historic town of Ludlow in Shropshire. Ludlow offers some great fishing on the teme with numerous tackle shops and some friendly pubs for that after-session pint.
The river then heads south between the small villages of Ashford Bowdler and Ashford Carbonell. It passes near the parish of Little Hereford, then heads east onto the market town of Tenbury Wells, where there are some beautiful swims offering superb barbel and chub fishing.
As it meanders east it passes south of the village of Eardiston where the river starts to head south past the village of Stanford Bridge. Stanford Bridge offers some great fishing on the teme with fighting-fit barbel, chub, pike, perch and other coarse species.
The Lower River Teme
As the river heads south it passes the parish of Shelsley Beauchamp and flows west of the town of Martley in Worcestershire.
The river then makes its way through some stunning countryside passing near the parish of Whitbourne and on past the villages of Knightwick and Broadwas.
The idylic parish of Leigh and Bransford offers great double-figure barbel and big chub fishing. There is also a large head of pike and perch on the lower teme, with double-figure pike being fairly common.
There is comfortable accommodation available in Leigh, Bransford and nearby Rushwick. Other amenities in the area include Bransford golf club, in case you fancy a round of golf.
The river heads through Powick near Worcester towards its confluence with the River Severn
. The lower stretch of the river offers superb barbel, chub and pike fishing, with the occasional zander finding its way up from the River Severn.
