Last week

(Last updated: Thursday 3rd May)

Although the river has been experiencing regular rises in water the lower river has thankfully been at a suitable height for salmon anglers most days. Newbie produced another fish weighing 12lb last week for Ian Howarth on the fly in Pat's Bridge. In recent years the best of the salmon run has been in late May and June so with any luck we will keep good water levels over the next few weeks and once spring arrives anglers can expect to pick up fresh running salmon across the lower and middle river beats. Sea trout should also start to run in numbers as the month progresses.

The upper river has been very unsettled over the last 10 days and at times holding a little on the large side for meaningful trout fishing. Even on the better days the fly life seems reluctant to get going and it may be that cold water temperatures are the limiting factor.
