fishing is going very well for me as i caught my 3rd salmon this year on monday up at curran at the mouth of the gange, but not impressed with the digger work the river agenceys has done caz the point of the grange has been taken completely away and the flow of the water has changed to, other fishermen say to that it is ruined and will never fish the same again, very disappoined.

John, i was up last night for another look at the point of erosion and that flood on friday seemed to help cover some of the exposed clay, it was certainly not half as bad as when we first found it. No doubt another big flood will wreck it even more and with the winter coming up with all the fish spawning in the area and alot of high water something needs to be done to stop or at least help the problem. i have noticed that even after the big flood the river when low ran with a slight colour. Unlike the maine which crystal clear at that time. Im sure as soon as we know how do deal with the problem we will do it quickly but i dont know when that will be. it was a sad sight last week..

The poor access afforded by the weir at Castledawson is the single biggest drawback to the enhancement of our fishery. If you could envisage free and natural passage of fish we would all become more likely to practice catch and release as we would have a chance of earlier and fresher fish We would be able to bring the disenchanted on board. The point I am trying to make is that our first priority as a club should be the removal of this scandalous barrier to fish . All avenues must be explored and we will prevail as we have the moral high ground

I find it interesting to read about the river-bed erosion in the upper reaches of the river.I have noticed an almost constant tinge to the water for a number of weeks and perhaps months.The fishing has suffered a lot in my opinion and I have had a very poor season with the fly.Hope the problem willl be cured.

I was out along the river yesterday around the Weddlebridge  and saw serious damage caused to the river banks by Saturday's floods. I'm sure there is deep holes in the river where there were none before - could be dangerous wading. The river is still running really brown even though the river has dropped to near perfect fishing height, so there is obviously a major problem upstream in the Sixtowns area. Found a few dead trout stranded in fields.

I have just been out to see the Moyola at Tobermore Bridge.There is a big crowd there to see what is probably the biggest flood for decades. The water is pouring out through the football club gates and the Bracagh road is impassable. I know this situation is adverse from an angling point of view but what worries me most is the liklehood of some pen-pushers suggesting more dredging and drainage We need to be ready to argue the case that the floodind is as likely to be the result of over-drainage from the mountain tpos down and well as the destruction of our boggy lands. By the way mombers should be on the lookout for fish being trapped in puddles as the water recedes. I once rescued 24 minnows from a  modest puddle above Tobermore Bridge a couple of years ago. It is possible that fish higher up the food chain will be in danger from stranding this flood

reply to: glenn moore.

it is hard to tell how many fish are in th ponds at present.
we stocked last year with well over 300 brown trout to 2 1/2 lb. initially it was thought the fish would only evade capture for a short time, but its great to see that club members are still enjoying the sport nearly a year later.
the trout have faired very well through the past 11 months, so this tells us that the pond has very good feeding.
if anyone is interested in lending a hand to get the ponds into shape this year for the open day they can make them selves known to a committee member or come along to the next meeting in he bridge bar castledawson on monday 18th august at 8pm.
we had a huge effort last year which was a big success......
lets hope this year is every bit as good.
