Recent fishing news

Shoals of seatrout – mostly, but not exclusively school peal – are currently evident in the lower river. Very welcome after such a difficult season . It’s hoped that anglers will be mindful of the  implications when considering taking a fish home to eat. A few fish are still displaying small amounts of fungus. . . .something else to factor into the equation.
DAA member Jonathon Camp did well to catch  two salmon recently between Austin’s bridge and Stretchford. Both spinning and between 6 – 9 lbs. These are the only two reported on recent high water.
