I fished at Bigs wear on Thursday on the River Wye for salmon.
It was great to see so many fish but the water temp was up to 70 degrees and I didn't touch a fish.
Keep up with the rain dances for we need lots and lots of rain otherwise my fear is that these fish will soon be seriously stressed with the heat.

Last day of the salmon season on the Usk and Wye. Both have had a diffcult year with fish catches still dropping.
The Grayling are on the top on the Upper Wye and we shall be having fun there soon enough.

River Usk so Far 2011 Season

Well what an odd season it has been to start. Great water which resulted in at least two fresh springers on opening day and since hardly anything. The river levels have dropped and the Large Dark Olive didn't really come in the number expected.
At this time we should be starting with the grannom hatches. Well the truth is they have come and gone. Like the daffodils they were three weeks early.
Smaller olives starting to come off but the fish appear to be keeping safe in the deep holes and those that do come out are coughing up cased caddis.

With the cold winds dropping and the expectation of rain we can only hope for improvement. Don't worry however its still a fantastic trout river.

If you are interested there is a presentation on the River Usk on Countryfile being broadcast on Easter Sunday.
