Last week

(Last updated: Monday 12th September)

August rolled into September with a few good lifts.
Several fish were caught from Bolton Estate and reports of fin clipped fish being caught is a welcome relief to all those who have been involved with the hatchery notably David Bamford.
Coarse matches around the Boroughbridge area report salmon all over the place disturbing the pegs!!!
Dan Sharp fishing Swinton managed a 5lb sea trout. Stephen Outhwaite taking another guided day with me managed a huge 20lb fish off Swinton on a small lift last Friday after seeing and losing another good fish on a cascade snaelda - it was a turn up for the books to say the least! Stephen got the opening day fish with me so we are on 100 percent record with each other - no pressure!

Giving a casting lesson on the Blue Lion on Sunday we saw several fish top and tailing. A few fish have been coming from Kilgram North also with a report just in of a 15lb fish from Betty's Pool. At time of this report, the river is running at a good level although coloured - As soon as the colour drops away we should be into fish.

River Esk Egton Estate
With prolonged periods of little to no rain
the fishing has been hard. When we have had rain the river has risen dirty but once
settled has produced some cracking sport.
As we move into the early Autumn we will still get good number of seatrout coming into beat, but also salmon.
If you can get out next week there could be some cracking sport. Keep and eye on the weather and also the levels link on our beat page.
