|David into a fish on the lower river|
We were beginning to see a good build up of salmon on the lower reaches for a while, with several fish being caught, however the higher water conditions gave these fish a window to travel upstream giving a better spread throughout the whole system, Unfortunately just when there was a good head of Sea Trout holding firm at the bottom end they too shifted upstream thinning catches out a little, making good catches more difficult, and given the higher water conditions we had in the third week of July this also hindered any good night fishing we may have had. However its good to see both salmon and sea trout making an appearance once again on many tides since then.

Anyway another minor set back prevented us from making any inroads into these magnificent fish, as the Dovey river had also received heavy rain and was far too high over the period we were there to do any fly fishing of note whatsoever. So as you can see, it does happen to us all at times!
