Ian Powell is pleased with the rise in the river and the improved fishing conditions:

Yesterday, just one rod Daniel Kadlubowski went out at about 2.00pm.  He released a couple of grilse around 6.00pm & I joined him at 7.30pm.
Shortly after I landed this 11.8lb salmon for him which is his Personal Best.  I then released a grilse & lost a bigger very fresh fish of ~6lb.  All fell to small flies.
Another grilse was caught on the upper river late in the evening making the total 5 for the day.

There are reports of good numbers of fish moving from the tidal water up into the main river, so the prospects for sport are looking superb coming up to the weekend.
