One of our members reported watching a fair few sea trout run the OLD fish pass recently: the water was up a little but not particularly high. We have guessed that maybe 10% of the season’s run ascend on that side. Could it be more ? well, we’d all be interested to know what the 2nd fish counter – when installed – tells us.

There seems to be a reasonable head of fish in the river that are likely to be well spread out after the recent high water. These fish have proved pretty hard to catch : cold nights and sadly, fungal disease, probably haven’t helped.
Though unconfirmed as yet and not on DAA water, a salmon has been caught on the middle river. This will not surprise regular TWP anglers who have been reporting ‘sightings’ for a while.
