Great evening session on the BWO spinners last night at Merthyr Vale. Fish really switched on about 9.00pm going into the dark. 10 nice fish came to hand, most between 12 and 15 inches, with 2 real slabs lost - one at the net, the other in a snag. Will be back for them!

First time on this stretch Fished up from Merthyr Vale From 3pm to 9pm v low level water, weather overcast, warm. Some trout rises but fish very easily spooked. 1 small wild trout caught and returned. No greyling evident.
Water quality good but sadly high volumes of bankside plastic and metal rubbish spoils the experience of being out in nature.

Fished the Taf Fechan. Water was very low low so targeted the riffly/pocket water with a size 14 olive klinkhammer. Managed to pick a dozen or so small wbt up to 1/4lb. I then snuck off on the main river for a couple of hours. The main river was very low so stuck to the same tactics in the faster water but this time with a Klink and dink. Managed to pick off up yo 20 wbt up to 2lb.

Great fishing. A little bit of navigation required to find the different spots - a map matching the typed details would be more easy for people unfamiliar with the area bridge names etc.

River good, fish rising, none caught, fished at Aberfan foot bridge, it is difficult to get down to the river at this point and the amount of rubbish in the river is disturbing

Fished the stretch by Quakers Yard Railway Station. Fished spinner, lures and worm. Not a nibble all evening I'm afraid!

Found some rising fish today. Olives were hatching and after several presentations of my dry imitation were ignored, I switched to an Olive emerger pattern which I'm pleased to report resulted in a hard fighting pristine 15 incher.
I've seen several comments about the condition of the river and whilst it is true to say there is a fair amount of rubbish this should not detract from what is an absolute gem of a trout river with just about every type of feature you could imagine suggesting a myriad of different tactics and approaches. And that this river, once an environmental disaster and now a fully restored ecosystem is nothing short of remarkable. I shall be putting thoughts of the Usk aside from now on.
