Saturday 6th April 2019

Another week over and its been rather quiet on the Association.

Its been a mixed week of weather ...wet ,windy , heavy snow then more rain .

The height this morning  was 2`3"  and falling .A good height for the spinner but again lack of fishers meant no fish recorded as of yet.

Temperatures are looking to be on the rise next week and brighter conditions .With Easter approaching hopefully the anglers will arrive.

Thursday 4th April 2019

Welcome to our news page for the 2019 season. We aim to keep this page updated regularly with catches, conditions and prospects.

So far this season, five salmon and one sea-trout have been reported. This includes three at 12 lbs, one at 15 lbs and one at 20 lbs.

The river height has been fairly steady, to date, and is presently 1 foot 9 inches.

Plenty of fish are being seen, however anglers are in short supply.

We have experienced a fair amount of snow during the past couple of days. We expect things to warm up with some rain due tonight; tomorrow's temperature may even hit double-figures.

All being well, another update will follow on Saturday.
Yours Salmo Salar
