Well tomorrow is Tuesday 15th March and is of course the opening day of our 2016 Season 🙂
Permits have been distributed to all the usual outlets (see https://devonanglingassociation.org.uk/about-3/permits-2/ )
The day is set fair, perhaps a wee bit of haar early on, then it should be bright with a gentle east wind (though not t-shirt weather). The river looks in pretty good nick and you never know the sun might encourage a few short hatches!
In the unlikely event you catch a spring run salmon please remember all salmon must be released.
A big change this year will be that Glenquey opens for 2016 on the same day as the river. Work parties have been busy clearing shrubs and trees along the north bank opening up more areas to cast when the reservoir is full
If you are spending time on this bank during the season, you can help the work parties while waiting for a rise by bringing along a handsaw!
I am pleased to report that work parties spied a few fish rising out in middle of reservoir last Wednesday.
If you have success on the river or at Glenquey, then feel free to send us your photos/tales and we will post them here.
Best of luck for the 2016 Season 🙂
