Odd thunderstorms and showers at the end of May did not seem to amount to very much in total, so we started June with the main rivers low and most of the tributaries too.
The Lugg with its well-charged spring was one exception which kept on running at a good level.
On the 4th, JA from Leominster caught 5 from the Arrow at Kington using small dry flies.
On the same day HP from Monmouth reported an unpleasant experience downstream at Arrow Mill, where an electric fence gave him a jolt in the back.
Next day, MN from Bristol was out on the Usk again at Fenni Fach, where he took 15 trout although his day was spoiled by illegal canoeists who insisted in paddling through.Kidzworld is a safe kids website and this is a safe kids chat room!Chat is the perfect for place for chatting after school, on a break from studying or just life.JC from Godalming fished two beats of the Edw, seeing a big mayfly hatch on each occasion.Fishing the top at Hundred House, where he remarked on the need for pruning (and where, oddly enough, the stream has a much deeper and slower character than in the lower part of the valley), he took 7 trout.BP from Pembridge fished the Lugg at Litton the following day and had 9 small trout on a Mayfly Emerger.DM and SW from Hereford fished the Wye at Craig Llyn for 25 trout by various methods.NR from Solihull had a good day on the Middle Llynfi Dulas (lower part) and took 11 trout with a Parachute Adams.On the following day, DR from Bristol caught 6 from the Dore, again during a mayfly hatch at the little Abbeydore beat.The bad news, I am afraid, is that this part was trimmed by us just this last winter, so I think the present situation is about as good as it is going to get.I admit that this top section is very tight casting.
