Angling on the Drowes was variable this week. A number of rods fished over the week with most of these concentrating on the weekend. There was a least a few salmon recorded which gave an improvement over last week. On Monday, Alfred Vanderwalle recorded an 8lb salmon caught on a fly from The Blackwater. On Wednesday, Thomas Kirwin logged a 7lb salmon caught on a Cascade fly from the Mill Pool. Sunday was a better day with 3 salmon recorded. Jim Adamson logged an 8lb salmon caught on a prawn. Gary Morrow registered a 7lb salmon caught on prawn from the Washstones and James Morrin accounted for a 10lb salmon caught on a Cascade fly from The Catwalk.
The river is a little on the low side at present reading around 5. Light rains are forecast for the coming days and hopefully these will be heavy enough to lift the river a little.
