Arrived 9am found the river was 3ft above summer level and coloured. Choosing two swims at the lower end of the beat sport was slow with 2 Barbel and a Chub in the first few hours.

With the river dropping and colour dropping out we moved up to Monument and fished from the only exposed gravel as close to the river as possible. After an hour the Chub moved in for me and Barbel for my companion PD who finished with 12 Barbel and 1 Chub I caught 15 Chub and 11 Barbel.

We fished till 7pm and the water was starting to rise again not looking good for next day.

Wet and extremely windy. River coloured though not as high as it had apparently been, but started rising again late afternoon.
Fishing hard going, impossible to fish the top half of the fishery safely because of rain, steep banks and water levels.
We managed 8 barbel between two of us from bottom section. Fish averaged 5-6 lbs with one larger at 9lbs, plus a handful of small chub on pellet & boilie combinations.
A tough but enjoyable start to our first visit to the Wye - Lower Ballingham tomorrow.

Had a late start as i waited for the rain to ease, and had planned to work my way downstream from the old viaduct, having fished the top end of the beat on a previous occasion. On arrival at the fishery hovever, the rain started again, so i decided to fish close to the car park and immediately above the viaduct. Fishing from midday until 6 p.m. the fishing was very hectic, and i finished with 24 barbel to 7lb 4oz and 2 chub of 3lb each. The other angler on the beat was from my part of the world and we had a good chat. He also caught well today on the lower section of the fishery. There appears to be a huge number of barbel in this fishery and i look forward to hpefully more swims being opened up in the future. Access along the banks has improved since my last visit in July.

Catch return - Nil. Unfortunatly the river was very high & coloured unsuitable for the fly.
Stayed at the Inn on the Wye at Kerne bridge it was very good, also they allow dogs.

Water still high and very coloured and going through very fast. Eel 1st cast on meat, 1 and 1/2lb, then found it quite hard to hit bites as the line kept getting debris on, but we got a few small chub before lunch. Then decided to glue some swivels on heavy stones and use them as weights to fish in the fast flow in search of the bigger fish. Got 5 chub up to 2 and 1/2lb and a barbel of 3lb. Hooked a couple of larger barbel, but one straightened my hook and I couldn't get the other past the rocks hidden below the flow. Caught a dace before the wind got up and then we stopped getting bites. Saw 3 good sized salmon rising all day, one very big. Along with the kingfishers and birds of prey it's a great area to fish, we enjoyed the challenge and we will be back. Successful baits were meat, cheese, and corn for chub - frankfurter pellets for the barbel. Thanks again to WUF

Although the river had dropped probably 3 feet from the tide-line left in previous days, it was still chocolate, hammering through and carrying quite a bit of general detritus which, in particular made the tiny swim below Boy's Rocks virtually unfishable. The next two open swims in the woods were fine and in the hour or so we tried them John took one babrel at 7 lb+ and lost one, both on pellets. Moving down to the first field (the middle part of the beat) where there's one obvious swim but a number of areas you could fish as the balsam and nettles were nowhere near as impenetrable as they have been on other beats, again a decent fish was lost. Not being familiar with the stretch, the turbulent heavily coloured water made feature spotting a challenge and we resorted to feeding marginal glides under or around bushes and trees.
For the last part of the day we moved to the bottom field, switched to meat and paste baits and, again, concentrating on the margins using flora as features, we had two barbel around 6lbs from a swim at the end of the tree line that leads back to the lay-by stile, and a final 7 lb-er from the very last swim where the small stream enters.
All in all a very fair result from a rather straight beat where we couldn't scan features to fish to. Notably there were no snag issues on the bottom two sections so the bottom must be gravelly and quite benign, although the bump and grind progress of feeders and leads suggested loads of streamer weed, confirming what we'd seen on the satellite photos.

Thanks WUF
