The river has been hit badly by the dry spell that some sections have completely dried up and fish have been forced to seek refuge in small inlets.

The river on the border with Wales is being monitored closely by the Environment Agency, as the dried out sections have left fish stranded.
A drone picture of the meandering river bed was tweeted by the Agency’s Dave Throup.
We will continue to monitor the drying River #Teme above #Leintwardine #Herefordshire over the weekend— Chris Bainger (@ChrisBaingerEA) July 6, 2018
As my aerial photos show we have water flowing & some nice deep pools of excellent quality water for fish to seek refuge.
