We cannot stress enough the importance of making quick and accurate returns of salmon catches, even if nothing has been caught. Recording catch data is one (perhaps the best, certainly the most cost effective) way of determining the success of our river restoration works. Although affected by short term variations in weather and water conditions, the longer term data set will build an accurate picture of our salmon runs. Catch returns can be made quickly via our online form for both Passport and non-Passport waters. Most of our reporting is from the Wye. Where a salmon has come from another river we will state accordingly.

Around a foot of very welcome extra water yesterday in the Irfon and Upper Wye, will only be a few inches by the time it gets to Monmouth. It should get the last of the smolts out and bring a more fish in, improving prospects and encourage the fish that have been coming in to shuffle up towards Hereford.  The Usk has hardly moved, so whilst prospects will be improved, the best salmon fishing is likely to remain confimed to the lowest beats.
