Yes is was better than last year but that is because last year was basically the worst year on record. In the past poor fishing/catching has been weather related due to the river being out. This year was the worst fishing with clear water conditions that I have had in the last 12 years. This is consistent with all the reports I have received from friends that fish different weeks, with the exception of one report in from the upper river in July and that was good only because in a normal year the upper river doesn't get many fish in July.

I don't know which is worse: Commercial netting or fish farms. I am afraid with the world's growing desire for lean protein that we are going to have one or the other. It would be great if we could have neither in the Dean River Channel.
