So far I've heard, "the pool was full of fish this morning!". And, "It's hard to find a grilse!"
Our guides and guests are seeing a lot of fish, and a lot of nice large salmon. Today our camp hooked 27, of which only two grilse were...
Almost all anglers had hooked up however briefly.
I heard tales of a fish rising 11 times before he revealed to be a lovely 85 cm specimen. I also heard of a fish rising 5 times and on the sixth pass.....another fish took the fly. Don't ya just hate when that happens!

Over all we have a happy group of anglers!

We expect that over the next couple of weeks the river should see plenty of fresh fish with every rising tide. Bring it on!
Our guests have been hooking up the last few days, but averages are down to around 2-3 hookups a day and it takes the...
The fishing over the last couple of days has slowed down. Not surprising as water temps during this very hot and bright week hit 70...
With the results still holding strong and reports of plenty of salmon and grilse still being...
