Salmon Season Extension

As you are probably aware the Environment Agency has decided not to continue with the experimental salmon season extension during the first fortnight of October. This is not surprising as the Agency is introducing byelaws to further reduce culling of salmon by rods and nets. With the present pressure on salmon stocks your committee reluctantly feels it is the correct decision.

The 2018 season will end on Sunday 30th September.

 

Annual Fund Raising Dinner and Raffle 2018

This year’s event will take place at The Half Moon Inn Sheepwash on Saturday 29th September. There will be a wonderful 3 course meal and many prizes for the raffle including days fishing on various rivers, all raising valuable funds for projects to help improve the river habitat.

In previous years the event has taken place in October during the fishing season extension. As the Environment Agency has now ended the trial extension this event has been moved forward to coincide with the end of the fishing season.

If you would like to book a place for the dinner or buy raffle tickets, please contact The Half Moon.

The 2018 Fishing Season

The season began on the 1st of March, which coincided with a spell of snow delivered by the ‘Beast from the East’. Since then the river has been in spate on most days and unfishable. We are now in the grips of a second spell of snow and it seems that the start of the season remains on hold.
