The river around the Coalport area is no place for the faint hearted with rock and boulder strewn banks, rapids, fords and deep gullies cut by very strong currents. This stretch holds long, lean, dark coloured Barbel that fight every inch of the way to your landing net.
The rewards here are outstanding for anglers who take their time getting to know the many facets of this powerful, natural waterway. A wander along the stretch in mid-summer, when the river is low will show the very many variations in depth and contours of the riverbed.
