The salmon season finished end of September with a good number of fish seen travelling upstream. Now that Head Weir has been removed, Clapworthy Weir repaired and a new fish pass installed, fish will have reached the spawning gravels with fewer obstructions to their passage. This should show increased numbers of fish returning in future years. Other weir improvements and removals have also been carried out recently. See the current news page on the River Taw Fisheries Association website http://www.rivertawfisheries.co.uk/html/current_news.html for further information.
We have now set the dates for our 2012 visit to the famous Miramichi river in New Brunswick, Canada. See my website for further details http://www.devonflyfishing.co.uk/miramichi.html. Get in touch with me to register your interest.
Although river fishing has now finished for this year, Wistlandpound and Wimbleball remain open for fishing until the end of November and we have several trout fisheries open all year, so for guided fishing with casting tuition call me to arrange a session.
