Still no change in conditions. algae realy bad on lower river and now ell upstream to the upper beats too. Also bad on the Monnow too I understand. Disgraceful really.
Plenty of barbel anglers out too it seems and on the goodish salmon beats too. These guys seem willing to pay £45 for a days coarse fishing- completely crazy or what!! At least it's a reward for those owners who stood by and did nothing while the river nosedived. As for the EA Officials who also watched it happen - well some still have their jobs in NRW presiding over the Towy disaster seemingly unwilling or unable to take any action to protect the river.
