For the first week of June the glorious sunny weather and low river levels combined to provide some more excellent brown trout fishing which has been the best for many years. Heavy rain on 7th followed by 10 days of unsettled weather led to a rise in river levels. Two salmon were caught: an 8lb fish at Beam from Yew Tree and a 10lb salmon from Brightlea from Sycamore Pool: both were absolutely fresh.
There has been a good run of sea trout with 41 being caught during the last fortnight of the month: most being about 2lb with a few upto 4lb. As the water cleared during the last week the best fishing has been on dark. Beam and the Riversmeet beats have fished best.
