Fishery manager Brian Curran reports that local rod Geoffrey Fitzjohn had a 6lbs salmon on Friday evening, 4th May. There were some sea lice on the fish showing that it was a fresh fish in on the tide. The fish took a Black Shrimp fly, size 10.

Conditions are good at the moment with very fishable water and some rain expected later in the week. We have good availability at the moment.
