Well its all over for another year, much to the relief of the spawning stock who will be able to hopefully spawn in piece on most of the main river. Season goes on until the 24th October upsteam of llawrythyl bridge and on the tributaries which is frankly a complete disgrace and WUF should encourage anglers to stay away from all these spawning areas, but of course they wont.

We shall now see a mad race to get as many numbers as possible from various, until now, 'unreported' sources to try and boost figures further.
How many fish have been caught twice I wonder,  We shall never know  but it's certainly not viable to compare todays figures with those before catch and release and certainly not with historical figures from the past.  But of course they will!!

Oh dear. Only ONE group of canoeists.  He should be grateful he got off so lightly. Most of us would be happy with just one incident!!

Beat:Gromain & Upper Llanstephan

Last day of the season,started well for us with GO catching one in the willow pool.Then it went down hill with a group of canoeists coming down the river.Informed WUF who said I could confront them which I did only to be told "sorry mate I made a mistake and we are going through down to the bridge"I asked him to get out there and then and also that he has committed trespass SORRY was his reply
One last day of the season ruined,

Strange day yesterday.  Not as bad as predicted but very windy nevertheless.
Strange thing is some anglers called the river leaf soup and decided it was not fishable, another didn;t fish at all brcause of the conditions yet anglers on the same beat caught fish, albiet stale one under the same conditions.  Funny old game!


See below.Difficult to read unless you can personally enlarge it.  Make grim reading but very well put by T & S though some claims of improvement on Wye and Usk may be premature.

Seems every man and his dog was out on the Glasbury to Builth sections yesterday with a mass attack on the spawners with just a day left.  Wonder if there is just a tinge of guilt amongst the self satisfaction = too much to ask for perhaps.

YESTERDAY

5 from Glanwye.
2 from Abernant
1 from Gtomaine
1 from Spreadeagle
2 from the Nyth
2 from the Rectory.

Lets hope all the fish survived the experience.

Not reporting any more fish. Churns my stomach somehow. Seasons over as far as I am concerned.

Good conditions as the rise falls away in all areas.  Only three days of the season left unless of course your one of those who continue to fish on the redds on the upper river. until 24th October.

1 from the Rectory
1 from Wyesham

Despite Wye being fly only since the 1st September someone apparently still doesn't know the rules.

Area:Middle Wye

The river was slightly coloured and noticeably rising during the day, so access for wading became difficult. Tried both fly and spinner but no fish seen or caught.


Saturday, 14 October 2017

Small rise continuing on downstream but falling on upper river. still some colour.
Some fish from yesterday before the river rose.

2 from Glanwye.
One from Gromaine.One from Graig Lyn.  reputedly a 1000 fish for the season!!

Friday, 13 October 2017

Yet a lttle more water again up at llangurig.  Not much at the moment but probably prevent levels from falling away too much.  Still a few days to catch that old pregnant backender pr one of the big male crocodiles.  Whatever floats your boat!


LATEST.  Irfon and the Wye rising at Builth Wells with considerable colour.

Thursday, 12 October 2017

Some extra water with some colour for most areas now. Should run off pretty quickly with no real rain forecast.

Three from Redbrrok to Robin Stewart 7-14lbs
