Three anglers have enjoyed an excellent weeks fishing on the Bolton Hall Estate this week with 12 salmon up to 16 pounds and 2 sea trout to their rods. Both fished the 3 rod Thoresby Beat which offers 3/4 mile of left bank fishing.
12 salmon & 2 sea trout all returned
Salmon were one at 16 lb, 15lb, 14lb.
Two at 12lb. Two at 11lb. Three at 10lb. Two at 9lb and a grilse at 3.5lb
Most of the fish had been in the system for a while with the exception of a couple caught on their last day, which were fairly fresh and included a stunning 16lb plus hen fish out of Dick Dub.
The start of their week the river fished slowly for the first 3 days. A major spate from the 17-19th October resulted in nothing at all caught. They were rewarded when the river recovered on the last 2 days with 7 fish up to 16lb to their two rods.
They had a super weeks fishing and a lot of fun!
