Half Moon Fishing Report: June 2020

At long last some much needed rain. Between 12th/15th June there has been over 50mm of rain: more than in the previous twelve weeks!! The river has risen but coloured. Salmon have been seen running the weir at Beam and when the weather settles there will be some good fishing for both salmon and sea trout.

There has been some excellent trout fishing, particularly during the last fortnight of May with good hatches of Mayfly. With the hotel closed fishing effort has been light but day rods have enjoyed some good sport on a dry fly landing several trout over 1lb.

The prospects are now much more encouraging.
