Had a lovely day on this beautiful stretch of water, yet didn't get a bite. Tried various different swims from the Wood Crib all the way up to Legg Meadow which were recommended by locals and the owner Don Macey Wright (lovely chap and very knowledgeable about the environment there). Also tried a variety of different tactics for the Barbs, meat pellets paste, feeders and ledgers etc, but nothing doing at all. Even tried maggot and casters on lighter gear to see I could tempt a Chub or Dace and this didn't even produce a twitch.
The conditions looked right, quite mild after a previous cold spell, rising water with colour, but I could only fish the near side margins due to the flow.
Looks like a fantastic, well maintained stretch though and it is in a beautiful area, so I will definitely be back later in the year. Don said the Barbs started showing from March onwards.
Saw one cormorant and also another Angler from Lydbrook fishing for Pike, he didn't catch either and from speaking with Don, shouldn't have been there as I was the only person booked on the stretch…

Blanked due to rapidly rising river - 5 foot above normal levels. Did hook a Jack but lost at net. Helpful owner tried to put us on fish, will be back again.

River still up and flowing hard and still cold. The river now had snow water which did not help to catch fish and we didn't.

Arrived to find river really tanking through and high. Could not hold bottom even with 6oz leads! Decided to fish margins but despite using all methods-including deadbait for pike we could not tempt anything. River was probably not really fishable, but having come, we gave it a go.
Thanks Wye & Usk for a brilliant autumn's fishing, will be back next June!!

The temperature was 10C and the afternoon generally sunny. The river level was up, but not dramatically, and it seemed possible a barbel or two might feed. However there was no action to report on this final trip of the year.

Same approach used as last Saturday. However the river was colder this weekend, and the barbel were not very active. One take at 15-00 resulted in an 8lb 02oz barbel, the only action of the day.
