(Last updated: Thursday 9th May)
The trout fishing over the past few weeks has been very difficult with only sparse hatches on most days and not too many fish rising to them. The hatches have been a little inconsistent for most of the early season now which is partly due to the long period of cold weather during early spring and everything now seems to be at least a couple of weeks behind. There are some good trout being caught at the moment but there has been little sign of the good afternoon rises expected at this time of the year with many of the fish being caught have been caught on wet fly, nymphs and bugs. The salmon fishing has also been slow following a number of good spates, there has been the occasional fish getting caught as well as a few early sea trout, most of which seem to be getting caught on the lower reaches and this should improve towards the end of the month.
Season review to follow.
