Last week

(Last updated: Thursday 26th April)

This week is providing some sport but mainly on the lower beats and the river levels are beginning to drop back and settle.
Gallery, Kinnaber seem are being most consistent, but with the current forecast this should suit the river will a possible lift or two
to keep the salmon on the move.
