SPECIES AND GUIDANCE… Salmon and Sea Trout
Due to the river having a large gravel bank at its outlet near Selker point, the fish require a spate in conjunction with a spring tide to enter the system. The river bed in the fields below the ford is of mud and silt with gravel higher upstream of the ford. The pools below the ford also contain reed beds which offer extra cover for fish. This is only a small spate stream but Sea Trout can be taken in the larger pools below Annaside. Daylight spate conditions are best with a bait trotted down the runs and into the small pools.
