Well within my comfort zone
With this lockdown, the earliest runners should be in the system now for some of our Welsh rivers. Time for a bit of water to aid them on their journey. Perhaps, without our current intervention, many may reach the spawning grounds & help kick-start a much needed improvement in fish stock. On the other hand, the current situation, predators, poachers etc. are left to have uninterrupted access to these precious quarry.

Here on the Yorkshire Esk the river is desperately low and some sea trout netting is taking place along the coast ! So unfortunately as normal many of the few sea trout that are still around will be caught by nets or seals , we need lots of rain to get the fish up the river relatively out of harm ! At least there are fewer nets and a shorter season .

Some dead fish have been found with damage which is attributed to the screw ,it will also confuse and stress the fish which increases the fungal disease,certainly detrimental for the fish and will never even be carbon neutral!

Almost the end of August & so far down here in the southern parts of Wales, the runs of sea trout has been pretty dismal. A lack of water, warm water, low oxygen levels which have not been conducive to intercepting the silver tourists. How have other river systems fared?
Now I haven't fished for sea trout but the reports here in Donegal are there has been an abundance my father in law has fished the Erne for 50 years or more and he says
Hes never seen a run like it..

Happy days, I hope the rest of us can see a significant improvement of migratory fish.

You should get yourself out there imo fishing through the hours of darkness for sea is as good as angling gets.
