Well 2022 was a bit of a dissapointment.
The start of the season was hardwork due to the 2 massive storms filling the river with trees.
There was plenty fish in the river early on but not easy getting to them.
Then from April onwards we never had any more rain.
The water was as low as i saw it in 1976.
There were plenty fish arriving at the loups right throughout the summer until mid August.
Nearly all salmon with some grilse.
Though nobody was catching anything in the warm water temps.
Seatrout runs seem to be increasing every year since the final nets have been taken off.
Didnt see any monsters this year, unlike last year.
Water was too high throughout November to see any spawning.
We did have a massive flood mid November that was only a 3 feet lower than storm Frank at the loups and record height bellow the westwater and luther.
Hopefully not too much damage to the reds.
Water looks good today.
It wouldnt surprise me if the odd springer was already sneaking in.
Lets hope theres more water in 2023.
The last 2 pics show how hight the river was.
Probably about 25 feet.
