Conditions were good but the fishing was very hard indeed, not for the inexperienced. There were very large numbers of very small (size of index finger) fish in this beat one of which we caught on a small dry fly but larger fish were few and far between. We saw 2 larger fish during the day (~12") and disturbed what we thing were a couple more but they proved very difficult to catch. Despite fishing very carefully and fishing the beat one by one in sections we were unable to catch any larger fish. I fished a single upstream nymph for most of the day. The gravel seemed quite silty in much of the beat with poor weed growth and on turning over some stones there wasn't a great deal of fly life. Plenty of small midges and we did see a 3/4 LDO duns at around midday.

Driving from London I reached the place later than I hoped, river was high but looking ok but it didn't last, levels increased and water got brown. Not risking wading I had problems accessing the river. There were no sign of gates and barbed wire fences everywhere. I like the Wye but probably this was the first and the last time I will go to Llanguring. Of course no fishes caught.

No life at all in the river. No fish. No fly life. A local passer-by even commented "who told you there were fish in here? There aren't". Hmmm.

WUF note - Although fish are not evident in great numbers, there are some large trout to be had here in some of the deeper pools. Please see earlier catch reports.

River slightly risen, some colour. Nymph used. Cold 2-3C, rain most day. No fish rise, no sights of tales, only few ships and crazy little pony observed my misery. Will check later this month again. Thanks!

No fish caught, the odd tiny one taking flies off the surface. Beautiful backdrop and superb weather, but of course the low flows are the negative and not a single hint of a fish of any size in what little water remained. I did catch a lovely wild brown trout here last year in much better water, so I'd recommend to anyone thinking of fishing here, wait for plenty of rain first!

River very low and gin clear, little sign of fish or flies hatching. Beautiful sunny day though graced by a pair of Ospreys circling overhead.

The river appeared to be in superb condition - very clear.
The day was ideal - warming up after the cold spell and with light cloud cover. The only down side was the lack of fish. Nymphs and a variety of dries failed to produce any results and so no fish taken. Neither of us managed to see any fish either - which given the clarity of the water is a concern. Is it predated out? I note, now, the comments about goosanders and otters.
