Lindsey Clarke reports from the RIVER DROWES – Monday 29nd August  to Sunday 11th Sept 2016. (2 weeks)

Week 1: The river was fairly quiet this week. Water levels were a little lower than desired but still fair. The Gauge on Monday read 0.56m and the river gradually fell over the week. By Sunday the gauge read 0.52m. There were some 6 salmon recorded for the week and we are awaiting details of the same. The river at present is rising again and water levels will be better this coming week.

Week 2: Water levels were fairly good this week. The gauge read 0.53m on Monday but then the river rose fairly steadily and by Friday the gauge read 0.64m. Water levels then fell fairly rapidly for the Drowes and by the end of play on Sunday, the gauge read 0.56m. The river was quiet this week and angling attendance was fairly low. Despite this there were still 8 salmon caught, all grilse.
