    Sea trout are running up the rivers right now in my neck of the woods. If we'd had water they would have been running much earlier. Often big sea trout come in March/April in my experience. You wouldn't think they would want to enter freshwater until later in the season closer to the spawning time, but they do.

    May be I have made a regional comment as my local rivers are difficult for anything to get up with out water. When I say 'run' I mean when the main body or largest numbers are river bound which I would guess is later in your area?

    In my student days in Northern Ireland, I caught sea trout at Portrush on a fly dropper attached to a swivel a foot or so above a small spinner. This, a method used by locals in the spring I think. I was told that gannets fishing close to the shore was a sign that white trout were around.

    sea trout numbers used to be alot higher, there were a number of rivers that would get a good number of fish but they were a bit of a local secret and very few were caught or even fished for.

    Even in the city centre of Norwich you get a couple of runs and if they sorted out the sluice which once had a salmon ladder attached it makes you wonder if they would get far enough up to spawn.

    This was caught in 2010 by a pike angler right in the city centre by all the bars etc!

    these days you are more likely to see an otter than a trout

    At the risk of sounding boring, it is illegal to fish for, or take, sea-trout in the sea off Scotland within a mile of low-water springs without written permission from the person having the right to do so. Usually the right will remain vested in the Crown, sea-trout (and salmon) being part of the regalia minora, but occasionally it is vested in another, usually the operator of a netting station. In Orkney and Shetland, the law is different, the prevailing system being udal law.

    That is no sea trout! It is plainly a salmon as is his second biggest ever...
