June 2011

River fishing improved in June with several salmon and sea trout landed and more seen on the Taw and Mole. Several salmon have been caught up to around ten pounds and grilse are also beginning to show. A sea trout of around 15 pounds was caught and returned on the middle Taw and others of a couple of pounds up to six pounds have also been caught.  A good run of sea trout has entered the river and fish can be found throughout the system as they make their way upstream.

The river levels are still a bit low but improved on May.  Prospects now are better particularly for evening fishing.  Stillwaters are fishing well and good sport is available with our smaller waters and larger lakes offering rainbow and brown trout.

Salltwater fly fishing for bass improves as the water warms.  We catch these fish from the beach and estuary mouth on a rising tide. Suitable conditions are usually bright sunny days with light winds.  Contact me to arrange a session.
