we fished for only 7 days out of the 9 we were there because the river got blown out for the last two, but it was still great.
It was the best August fishing we have ever had and there were a lot of fish, as well as big fish. I was concerned by the lack of grilse in the river but there were a lot of 12-18 pound salmon that i presume was last year's grilse run.
We didn't get to fish dries as much as I would have liked because of the high water but I did manage to get a 35 pounder to take a yellow bomber.
I ended up personally catching 23 fish, 6 grilse and 17 salmon.
We caught a lot of fish over 20 pounds this year, including a couple of 40s and 5 fish in their 30s. I will post up some pictures when I get back to college.
