Fishery manager Osgur Grieve reports on fishing from the 9th – 17th of August. Christopher Williams had 4 grilse for the week weighing 3lbs, 4.5lbs, 4lbs, 4.5lbs from a variety of beats. His brother David had 2 for the week weighing 2.5lbs and 7lbs, 1 of which was released. On the 13th Neil Richmond tempted a nice 5.5lbs grilse to a Sunray Shadow at the Falls Pool which he released; also on the 13th Margaret Downes who stayed with us had a very fresh 4lbs grilse on a cascade which she also returned. Water levels are low again but rain forecast for the second half of the week should improve conditions greatly.
