Upper river dropping quite quickly now but too high for most beats.  River peaking on lower beats,   Looks drier in the outlook so perhaps some sport in a day or so, especially up and middle river.

Saturday, 17 August 2019

Well the rain did arrive, more in some places than others.  Nevertheless a decent spate on the upper river with around a metre of water, so a decent spate this time.   What will there be to take advantage of the rise other than older fish around a little.?  Will there be any grilse /  Questions hopefully to be answered shortly.
River is of course badly coloured,

Saw this on the WUF website ???

In 2019, the Foundation will begin a joint venture with CABI to trial the rust at two locations in the Wye catchment. The initiative is part of our “Restoring Our Amazing River” project, funded by DEFRA’s Water Environment Grant

I thought  they had been restoring our river for the past 20 years or so -oh its the last bit - a grant - silly me.

Heavy prolonged rain not arrived here yet - I guess it might later on if the forecasters get it right.
Upper river dropping following the small spate -likewise risen on the lower beats.   Things pretty quiet to say the least at the moment.

Thursday, 15 August 2019

River up about a foot on upper river but now peaked.  Middle river should rise during the day and prospects tomorrow forecast heavy rain through much of the day.

Wednesday, 14 August 2019

No rain to speak of despite the dire warning of previous days.  Conditions remain stable
at the moment.

Stephen Grimwood reports a fly caught grilse of 5lbs from Llydinam.  That one must have got a move on but something from the upper river at last

Today.  6lb fish for Beverley Drew from the Cafn pool, Nyth beat..

Another little upward blip in levels on the upper river.

Tuesday, 13 August 2019

A little more rain overnight but levels pretty stable throughout the river. Reasonable conditions throughout.

A couple of fish reported yesterday -Wyesham.  Mark Allsop 12lbs and Gordon Richards 7lbs spinning.  Reported as fresh fish!

Latest.   Spate seems to have stirred a few up -usual places mostly.

Llangoed -Orchard/  Tim Hughes 8 and 12lbs.
Wyesham  David Banks.  10lb on a mepps.
Tyr Celyn  9lb and 8lbs. One on fly -the other on a Rapala.

River falling now on upper beats. Still some colour from the Irfon but a fish caught at Glanwye on fly apparently by Stephen Morley.  17 1/2lbs  Make the most of tomorrow as another good dose of rain forecast for Wednesday.

Disgraceful pollution goes on;   Should'nt be too difficult to trace -should it

Last night Countryfile programme was another eye opener  Commercially supplied organic compost supplied to farmers full of plastic and spread all over the fields.
Then a section on pig feed pellets which also contained bits of plastic waste mixed in  throughout the pellets.

God knows where we will all end up.
