River Reports

Our River Reports are intended to inform anglers about how our waters are fishing. Once reports are published on our website they are never removed so that anglers can look back over many years to see how the river has fished in the past. Anyone who fishes our waters can send in reports. Please include pictures (just add them as attachments). Reports can be submitted for publication by email to
