Just wondered if any Salmon or seatrout been caught this season, no mention on here.
There have been fish caught but many are reporting a poor season.
I've put about 300 hours in for one salmon and a sea trout.
I noticed in this months Trout and Salmon mag they were noting the poor results and stated that the waiting list for the Esk fishery Association was virtually zilch and even advertised the secs details for potential members... Things must be bad....
I fished the Esk alot this year very few sea trout but some salmon ,seals and nets get the sea trout before they come in the river?
The river is a shadow of what it ones was some years ago
Have you given it a go this year Leon?
If so how did you get on?
Have not tried this season unfortunately due to work commitments, when I have been off been taking my son coarse fishing to drumondby, dale view ,ingelby pond etc, not really my cup of tea, hopefully get back on the esk next season.
Illegedly they didn't fill the quota of members this year, because there there was either 15 or 16 members that dropped out and the waiting list was small before that
Any lads been out on the Esk lately? I know of 2 salmon took at slieghts last week after that little rise in water and also watched a few go over the wier at Ruswarp same day ,
Had a look mid-river last week after the lift and didn't see or contact a thing.
Heard about those salmon too- think there has been 1 or 2 off the EFA lower beats too.
I actually fished sleights on that last spate over them big tides when the river was at a nice height , I fished teatime and early doors the following morning , seen one scrawny trout jumping at the dam and nothing else, I actually bumped into steve i o which was a shock didn't know he fished for them much . anyway he never had anything either while i was there . I expected to see a few fish like but botall., fished a couple of days later on the evening up at egton courtesy of me fresh water accomplice we seen 2 good fish as dusk was starting to draw on but again botall , another lad had caught one seatrout on the morning but nothing else , Apparantly there was a few salmon and seatrout come off efa water not loads tho . Maybe there just abit late like everything else ?
