J caught 1 grayling about 2lbs on Adams and lost 1 trout 1 1/2 lb on goldhead nymph plus acouple of fingerlings
R caught 2 decent brownies one about 1/2lb and the other just 2lbs, both on goldhead nymphs. All returned.
Given the conditions and recent reports we were satisfied.
No rises, little airborne life. Rained most of day at about 12C. River low and clear.
Make no mistake wading here even at these levels is very tricky and potentially perilous if you want to cover the water. Not a lot of water, 4 rods would be too many. Costly for this part of the world all considered. To the contrary it would be good value for the salmon fishing if they have a run like last year.

Water clear and low at 0.32m on the Ddol Farm EA guage. As the guidelines say, this lovely beat is for the well-shod and sure-footed! First time here and, in retrospect, should probably have come a few weeks earlier when upwing hatches were still abundant. Hardly any on the day, with just a few yellow sally stonefly and some sedges flying around. Lots of cased caddis on the rocks and boulders in the margins. Started early but didn't stay to see if there was much of an evening rise. Not surprisingly, there were very few rising fish - just a few small trout sipping in the foam lanes late afternoon and not a grayling-rise all day. Fished the water with emergers, duo and, in a few likely looking spots, weighted bugs. All but one fish taken on a hare's ear emerger; the other on a PTN. Had eight trout and one 12" grayling, most of which were non-rising fish. Best trout a lean 16" 1.25 pounder. The sandpipers were busy all day, a red kite popped in to say hello and, if the fish weren't very interested in what fly there was, then a pair of pied flycatchers certainly were, with other mouths to feed in one of the nest boxes on the beat - delightful! Will be back in September for sure in search of the ladies!

A truly stunning area and piece of water – was like being in Slovenia in a couple of places. Horrible conditions but we had some great sport. Actually, Dolgau outfished Craig Llyn by a long shot and we saw some huge fish cruising around. You had to be ultra-stealthy, but when you were you could really get them nearly every time. Pool just above the bridge fished really well and we had 8 out of that one alone; 5 browns, 3 grayling. Biggest grayling would have been just under 50cm! The biggest trout wasn’t far off that too.
We picked up some nice fish in almost every pool with a nice mix of trout and grayling. No hatches to speak of, sadly, but we did get some nice fish on the dries with the rest being on small nymphs fished on long and fine leaders.

First time on this beat and what a beautiful beat it is. A vast variety of different types of runs, pools and glides to suit all anglers. A constant hatch through the day of pale Olives, but very few fish showing. Most fish caught on weighted nymphs and a few on klinks. Met the land owner how was very pleasant to chat to and was very informative of where the best areas of the beat were. Had a wonderfull day and definitely will return. Thank you.
