Last week

(Last updated: Friday 20th October)

After what has been a quiet year by last years standards - October has really come in with bang. After several spates of around the 3 meter mark fish seem to be on the move in the hundreds.

From Bolton Estate down to Boroughbridge fish have been getting caught in large numbers.

In the past week alone Brian Towers has been into them with several fish to around the 16lb mark, David Marx has had several plus his friends have had around 10 that I have heard of. Ben Bolton caught and released a lovely fish on Sunday just gone his 2nd fish in as many visits to Swinton Estate. Stuart Rose played 5 fish and landed 3 to 12lb on Monday. He saw a huge amount of fish moving through. Again on Swinton Estate. Wednesday long time salmon angler Graham French on his first ever visit ti the Ure played wait for it,,,,, 12 salmon landing 3 losing 3 at the lip of the net and playing 6 more not to mention a sea trout to end the day. If every fish had stuck that would of been 13 salmon and a sea trout in 2 says now by my reckoning that's once in a lifetime territory. The next day we took a 10lber at the Blue Lion and I heard of a 20lber coming off the Middleham stretch. Brian Towers with guests at Swinton again was into fish a 16lber and another one that snapped 15lb leader!

The amount of salmon therefore caught in the past week has to be at least around 20 fish for fairly light angling pressure with many many more fish hooked up and played. Swinton Estate has seen the cream of the action and these fish are working their way up.

12 more days as I write this to get on the river and lets finish the year on a high. We currently have to be one of the UK's best performing rivers this week at that surely is something to be proud of.
