The Bideford Brook is a small stream that joins the River Severn not far upstream from Lydney. A few miles from its confluence with the river Severn, this beat is a classic example of lowland small stream trout fishing. The river is set below field level for much of its length, so combined with a fairly thick tree canopy is well protected from the elements. Expect to catch wild brown trout up to 12” from the small, deep pools, and short straight flats.

Wading is easy over a gravel riverbed, and a footpath along much of the beat ensures a straight forward return to the parking area.

The beat is ideally fished with a 6 to 7ft, 2 to 3wt rod.
