2016 Catch Reports

Posted on Jul 13, 2016 in Catch Reports, News


The fish are (at last) up in numbers. With the recent warm nights anglers are having good sport on the fly at night.

Last Wednesday night I had 3 sewin up to about 2lb in the Mill area. A (Jinks) Jenkins had a cracker of about 3lb plus we both had numerous takes and lost a few. The rain came and Sunday was excellent, I landed a salmon, turned another, had a few follows from sewin and had brown trout up to 2lb on Rapala below St Catherines Bridge.

Jinks had a salmon of about 8lb below Treffgarne Bridge and a couple of sewin. Adrian Batty had a sewin above St Catherines Bridge and 3 more down at Red Hill. Steve Evans had a sewin in the Gorgon and saw a lot down on the flats chasing his spinner. Dave Evans had a fantastic sewin over 8lb in the bridge pool above the Gorgon. Carl Lowndes lost a sewin of over 4lb at the net in the Halt pool in Wolfscastle.

There have also been reports of fish between Bridge 14 and Nant-y-Coy bends (if you can fight through the jungle). It did seem that everyone who went out this week either caught or saw fish from the start of beat 1 to the top of beat 3 on the Western Cleddau. Fish have also been caught on our stretch at Llawhaden on the Eastern Cleddau. Nigel Mayhew has had 3 on the fly at night. One visiting angler on a day ticket caught his first ever sewin on a Rapala below the Keeper’s pool.
