When to fish


This is fish stalking country and anglers only cast their flies, whether floating imitations or nymphs, upstream to rising or feeding trout.

The trout season officially opens on 1st April but most fisheries delay their opening day till either the last Saturday in April or 1st May, closing in early October.

Grayling season runs from 16th June to 15th March. Anglers should also note that the fishing can be suspended during certain periods in the summer when fisheries cut and manage weed.
