Two of us fished hard from 11am to 6pm. We managed 7 trout (x5 on spiders and x2 on nymphs) and missed a few on dries. Unfortunately, we experienced another cold, downstream wind which probably explained the lack of fly life. We did notice a few LDO's and MB's towards the end of the day which brought up a few fish but they never really switched on. Nevertheless, a good time was had on such a beautiful and accessible stretch of river. Look forward to another visit when it warms up a bit.

12 x trout 6-14 inches, spiders - Waterhen Bloa and Snipe and Purple - and dries - Olive Jingler and Parachute Adams. The Usk is now down to fishing height and colour, but this was really hard work due to a cold start (3 degrees) and a very cold downstream wind through the day. Almost no hatching fly seen although a few olives finally turned up around 3 in the afternoon. For the first time in the day, a few fish rose (not many) and gave us a brief chance with a dry fly

Worked from the bottom beat up to the bridge then halfway on the right bank. Sunny day with clouds forming in the afternoon. Fished a pheasant tail nymph along the left bank. Some restricted access so lots of in and out the water. Nothing doing before lunch. First cast on right side down from bridge and small black spider fished on the surface was grabbed by a 8 oz brownie. Worked down the right bank, much better access this side. Three more fish falling for same fly. Recommend the upper part of the beat from the car park if looking for easier access.

A great day's fishing. The river was just about fishable following recent rain but it was clearing throughout the day. Another stiff, cold downstream wind with little fly about. Most fish were taken on spiders but it was nice to take a couple on dries towards the end.

Nice water, a few fish rising around lunch, no march browns which was odd.

15 x trout 9-15 inches, Waterhen Bloa, Dark Moorgame, Woodcock and Hare's Ear. Bright and sunny, but wind still cold at times. River high but clear and just about back into fishing condition. Hatches sparse - large dark olive, march brown, stone fly. All on spiders today; nothing much to be done with the dry fly it seemed.

24 x trout 10-16 inches, mixture of spiders and dries - Waterhen Bloa, Dark Moorgame, Woodcock and Hare's Lug, Olive Jingler, Humpback Spider. The last is a Paul Proctor pattern which is actually fished at the surface as an emerger. Today was another cloudy but mild spring day, large dark olives through the morning with fish coming to spiders and Olive Jingler. Then between 12 and 1 o'clock a short but intense hatch of march browns which seemed to get every fish in the pool showing at the surface. It was quite spectacular for a while. However, they wanted an emerger rather than a complete dun imitation and, after some wasted time, Proctor's Humpback Spider turned out to do the trick. All quiet on the river by mid-afternoon with a chilly wind picking up. March Browns seem to show up earlier every year now.

19 x trout 10-15 inches, dry fly and spiders. We had a long wait to get started this year, but at last the Usk dropped to a level making fishing possible, with quite a nice colour to the river, even if the current was still strong. A warm rather dull day with a slow burning large dark olive hatch going on for quite a few hours from 10 o'clock on. Dark Moorgame was the favoured one from a team of spiders, while an Olive Jingler got 8 fish which were hitting duns on the surface. All done by 4 o'clock.

River up and clear couple of other anglers fishing, reports of fish running. Had A parr take a large hairwing double and one good pull could have been a trout but nothing after. Not much sign of fly life an only saw about half a dozen rises. Good to see bailiff about.
