River Lugg – Lugg Mills Bridge

Brief description of fishery:

The Lugg from Shelwick downstream to Lugg Mills Bridge follows a straighter course as it flows downstream to Lugwardine over a gravelly substrate. The water here has lots of gravelly runs interspersed with slower deeper stretches. Barbel Chub and Dace are the main coarse species here although perch. pike and occasional roach are also present.  Trout and Grayling can be caught on the gravels using fly fishing tactics. Barbel and Chub can be caught on all the usual baits, but Halibut pellets often work better for the Barbel. There is plenty of bankside cover all along this stretch so a roving approach may be your best bet.
