Salmon can be encountered right from opening day on February 11th anywhere on the river but the higher beats are usually a favourite. During April and May the brown trout fishing is superb with many specimens of 5 to 6 lb being caught each year.
Sea Trout start running towards the end of May until July and again a 7 lb fish is not uncommon.
The grilse run begins mid July but given water can start in June and can last all season.
