I like fishing Duncan's - but most time when arrive someone's fishing it already so I'd rather have a crack at something no ones fished - although you'd have to say Duncan's is the most likely place for Salmon to sit - especially after going up and over the falls - and that's why everyone fishes it! I also like giving pipe pool a shot as I've seen a few fish over the years splashing there on the opposite side just above the tree.The walk definitely test you! When we went fishing Monday with that mindset of “no one fishes the top pool” we met a lad in the car park who’d fished it and also he said two others had been fishing before him! I’ve heard stories of some right fish coming out of their over the years though and funnily enough out of the fridge pool too,your right that’s the one by the fence on the walk up to the top.
I’ve just had a look and I thought the glide you were referring too was a bit higher up than it is where the brook comes in just down from the tail of Dee farm-all along their is good when it’s 700-800 with the salmon fly-so I’m told! The bit you fish is good with the spinner when it’s high.
Do you not fish Duncan’s pool and above the falls,that’s probably the best chance of a grayling,trout and seatrout-i got a grayling on a flying C a few weeks ago about 2lb when it low in the faster water just down from Duncan’s before the big clearing. It does get hammered down their but theirs also some decent brownies along that bit too,I’ve had a few on the spinner and my mates had a few on the fly too.
My mates been fishing today and he’s had 2 salmon straight after each other off the golf course. So they are still coming through-slowly at least!
2 fish - sounds positive!
