The rivers are unstocked so any fish caught are native
fish.(Except for the occasional escaped Rainbow trout)
A Trout of 10 inches is a good fish and if you catch one over 12 inches
you should consider it a very good day
In early season a weighted nymph will work best, as a
general rule once the Hawthorns have started to flower the fish will
start to come up in the water.
From June onwards dry flies will work well an Adams or Iron Blue Dun
is a reasonable starting point.
In recent years, as a result of much improvement in the
general water quality May flies have started to appear from early June
onwards, encouragingly the trout have taken to this new found food source
and good sport can be had.
However it must be said that the is no supplementary stocking and wild
fish are still not abundant so please do practice restraint if taking
