View the Salmon Catches

Last Update: 9:16 pm, 20th August 2018

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.

Thursday 16 August 2018

10:57 am Following last night's rain, there is a good push of fresh water coming down the upper reaches of both rivers. Salmon and trout fishing has been re-opened on most middle/lower Wye and Usk Passport beats.

Monday 13 August 2018

9:24 am The rain over the weekend has added a couple of inches to the top end of the Wye and Usk, and it seems to be heading downstream though there is every chance it will not make much of an impact. However the cooler temperatures have had an effect and the river is becoming much more fish-friendly.

Friday 13 July 2018

2:10 pm It's raining! Let's hope it's more than a little shower, we have had a bit of a storm push through already but no sign so far of any significant rainfall.

Tuesday 10 July 2018

12:02 pm Finally a bit of rain forecast for Thursday/Friday, hopefully it will bring a little bit of much needed flow to the rivers. June's salmon report is now live, offering an insight into the low flows on the Wye. You can read it through the 'Catches and Reports' section.
