Trout & Salmon (UK) - - England And Wales -

WITH LOW water at the be­gin­ning of May, bait­fish­ing re­stric­tions were put in place on the Bridge Flats and re­mained un­til heavy overnight on the 16th raised lev­els to their high­est since the first day of the sea­son. As the river rose to over 2 m on the NRW gauge it be­came fish­able late in the day and sur­pris­ingly failed to hold its height and colour the fol­low­ing day. There were no re­ported catches. There have been only two flags to date, com­pared to 11 over the same pe­riod last sea­son. Sea-trout slowly moved into the lower pools at the end of May and the first fell to Andy Ren­wick at just over 2 lb out of Mur­phy’s. Bill Pen­ning­ton and Andy Ni­chol­son have also been suc­cess­ful with sim­i­lar-sized sea-trout. As I write (June 1) num­bers of sea-trout to 6 lb have been seen, and an 11-pounder has been caught by one of the boats at Glandyfi net­ting sta­tion. A small spate would not go amiss. On May 26 the huge trees caus­ing ob­struc­tion in Fir Tree pool were re­moved. – G. H. THOMAS.
