The water levels at this stretch of river were very low, so I was not expecting to much. Three descent sized wbt in the 8 inch range, all on nymphs in the heavily wooded sections.
A stunning stretch of water.

River very low. Hoped to try for a sea trout with fly but struggled to find sufficient flow to swim a fly! Enjoyed working my way upstream with my 6ft rod trying to hook small brown trout in the pools.

Two 5-6 inche WBT. Accommodation at Dolaucothi Arms very comfortable. Glass of port in your room each night was a very nice touch. Bed very comfortable.

Spent the whole day walking south of the Pub to the bottom car park. Water levels were relatively low with the lack of recent rain. Tried the junction to start on nymphs with no signs of life. As we walked the river found the occasional promising section but again no signs of any fish.
From about 11 the insect life came alive giving us some hope of seeing some rising fish. Again not much to report. Switched to dry and a tried of a variation on a small pheasant tale. By this point we had walked a lot and hardly seen anything. Casting on the occasional promising section.
Just south of the middle parking and the bridge got a couple of small 5" browns, (could have been the same fish caught twice!). Both on the same dry fly. No other success on this section following the short spell of activity.
Managed to dodge the angry cows and tried some very promising sections and a lovely looking pool with deep water. Tried a variety of nymphs etc as the water was full of small creatures. However no sign of fish, no takes.
Tried a little further downstream after seeing a few rises but no takes.
All in all a lovely remote section but would only recommend exploring form the middle park and bridge down, didn't have time to go north of the junction. Felt like it would have been more productive than it was. I'm no expert fisherman but certainly have seen more fish rise/swim in other rivers/sections previous. Nice bit of isolation from the world though.

With a good amount of rain the day before but running off nicely, nymphing was the order of the day. The other 3 anglers with me were professionals (guides and instructors) so hopes were high with great conditions.
We split into pairs and starting from the Junction Pool just below the Dolaucothi Arms, 2 made their way up the main upper Cothi and 2 up the Twrch tributary. We met again at lunchtime to swap stories and catches
The 2 who went up the Twrch caught 4 trout between 10 and 12 inches and a number of small parr but results on the whole were not great considering. The 2 on the Cothi caught 7 trout around 6-7 inches but were again slightly disappointed.
The afternoon saw us drive to the lower parking area on the middle Cothi and split into pairs again, working up and down stream respectively. Several trout taken and a number of parr but again not in the numbers one would've expected given the excellent quality of the runs and riffles interspersed with beautiful holding pools.
Between 6 and 8pm we moved back up on to the Twrch and took a number of small trout through some weir pools and above which was encouraging, but numbers were still lower than expected.
There were a few Olives coming off but they were few and far between. We sighted a few goosanders but one thing that was interesting was the size of the invertibrate life. The inverts on the Cothi were a lot smaller than on the Twrch and the quality of the fishing reflected that.
The river has huge potential but something may not be quite right at the moment.
