Sea trout are into nearly all the river systems with good runs as I write and with more to come. Preparation is well worth doing as it will be dark when you are trying to find a replacement fly for the one you have just left up a tree.

No lined trousers and skirts yes its summer, but, don’t tell the fish as they still think it’s spring time. I feel we are running a few weeks behind this season with water temperature steady around the late forty’s and low fifty’s on most rivers at the moment and they are surely going to rise slowly with little snow melt to come.

The river emerges from the steep Altnahara gorge into the more open vistas of the Daltra Beat, with magnificent scenery and some fine old conifers within the extensive areas of native broadleaves.
This beat offers a very wide variety of fishing from high water levels downwards, perhaps really coming into its best on a falling river to a medium height. From the Daltra Pool to the Sand Pool there is no opposition from the opposite bank. The combination of the Altnahara Beat with the Daltra Beat ensures that so long as the river is in a fishable condition there are always excellent angling opportunities in a number of pools up and down the beats. Vehicle (4WD is best) access is to groups of pools. The Daltra Beat is fished on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
