The Farr Side

Here we are at the end of July, it’s been a mixed month with the weather seeing water most weeks up to 2 ft 6, it carried a lot of beer colour which should of been good for the sea trout. 3 where landed and a few lost but we expected a few more on the back of numbers reported down river. Fingers crossed we get a big late run.

With the Salmon we ended up with 15 most of them fresh run.  Fishing the Sunray did well for Fiona Brown, her first try she landed a 8lbs fresh fish out the Boat Pool  and the same with William Stebbings a 5lbs fish!  The others came on a variety of flies, Blue Gledswood and Silver Stoat doing well.  The Stream and Boat Pool have fished well this month with Woodside keeping it's end up! Some changes to the scenery at Woodside all the Softwoods are being taken out on the Ravenswood side, this might let the wind in on a bad day.  I have been busy catching up with the weed cutting and strimming the banks.  The water is dropping away of the gauge now so waiting for the next flood to bring some more fish in. Fingers Crossed.
