Following a couple of decent spates in late May/early June, it was always likely that a few salmon would have made it up to Smithston. A couple of the rental syndicate rods have been out, but some nice trout were the only successes….until this week.
Delighted to report that David Allfrey had our first salmon of the season on Tuesday, with a lovely  hen fish of about 13lb from Wilson’s Pool. Well deserved for his enthusiasm in coming up for a week!

The ramp down to Salmon Lies has had a temporary repair with a new hand rail fitted which makes it easier to use pending the replacement of the whole structure which is expected to take place shortly. Work to improve the bridge over the culvert on the track just before the cabin is also underway and is expected to finish shortly.
