Some food for thought here on the Osbaston Weir project, much vaunted before is inception.
Bit like politicians promises!!
At the time of writing (mid November) there had been just six fish >50cms (presumed salmon) counted up the fish pass at
Osbaston with only ONE in the peak period of October/November. Five of these fish came up in late May and June so were
quite possibly not in fact salmon. It has been a hard season for salmon and salmon anglers on the Wye - this poor run of fish
does not bode well for future seasons. The usual upstream migration of trout, presumed by some to be sea-trout, in the
summer appeared to be about the same as usual with 132 fish between 10” and 16” ascending the pass in 2018.
