Low water and steaming temperatures kept fishing to a minimum throughout the summer with very few salmon seen or caught: those reported included fish for Bush and Rob Dart junior.
A couple of spates brought a few more anglers out with early autumn success for Andy Myall and Robin Thorne – clean grilse of 4/5lbs – and another of 6lbs for Rob Dart senior. One or two other fish have been caught further up the river but unless things change fairly radically September seems unlikely to bring significant change.
Sea trout fishing was dire in the hot weather with many rods simply not bothering. Bits and pieces of rain in late July and August have at least provided some sport with school peal.
