For the Fishing Reports page to be effective we really need details of your catches. Please send these to and will endeavor to keep this page up to date for the benefit of members and visitors. It is always useful to have details of the location, the method used and the fly or lure that was successful.



No Salmon reported to date since the season got underway on Feb 1st. The Brown Trout season has just opened (15th March) so fingers crossed for a good season this year for all Salmon, Sea Trout and Brown Trout anglers. While the results from last season were mixed there were some memorable catches. For me one of the best outcomes was the end of year total release rates for both Sea Trout (at 83% released) and Salmon (at 91% released). Hopefully successful members and day visitors will continue to get a great deal of pleasure from just catching and taking a photo of these fine migratory fish then watching them swim away.

As the new season progresses, do please send an email to with your notable catches, along with a details of the fly / lure and location. It is also great to have a picture attachment wherever possible.

Tight lines!
