Last week

(Last updated: Tuesday 26th September)

23rd September. The river conditions are about as good as they get for the time of year, levels are dropping off and clearing. There are salmon about, plenty of summer fish around but not the numbers that used to be entering the river during the Autumn period. A twenty two pound fish yesterday from Lazonby and one of twenty five and twenty last week above Carlisle with fish also in the teens. The trout fishing is improving as the water drops and clears.

Season so far

April was slower than usual, cold winds and low water did not help matters although there were fish caught. Trout fishing was slow to get going.
May, a lot of fish about this month and some big ones to, low water prevailed for the most part and the bottom beats did very well as did the middle river. Trout fishing was excellent.
June was better for the beats above Carlisle with the weather conditions. Good numbers of sea trout entering.
July is grilse time, they came early last year, there will also be some very good salmon among them. The sea trout numbers should peak this month. A very wet July with constant floods hampering sport.
August is shaping up nicely for fish numbers running, both grilse and salmon, weather patterns unpredictable.
September, the first half of the month have been high levels of water due to poor weather making fishing difficult. Better conditions for the second half hopefully! Second half great conditions with some large fish being caught.
