Blog, news and reviews from Snowdonia Fly Fishing Guides
After a very cold winter we are now having an exceptionally hot, dry summer. Now don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining, I like hard winters and warm summers, proper seasons, but we've had no rain since early May and the rivers really could do with some water in them. Low, slow, poorly oxygenated, tepid water isn't the best for good fishing.
I was out with clients and guests on Wednesday and Thursday. With low rivers and the temperatures up here in excess of 30ᵒ C the fishing wasn't easy. Knowing the area well helped me get them onto some productive water and a respectable catch rate was achieved on both days with a mixed catch of grayling, several brownies, one topping 1.5 lbs, and one client bringing a very pretty little (sewin) sea trout.to the net.
