Fished the river last week, first proper day on it this year. Started below the weir with a hares ear nymph. Had four fish from this section including one from the weir pool itself.  Water fairly low, lost one really good fish which I saw take the nymph below the weir pool, I was a bit hasty trying to set the hook. Had about an hour below the weir,  after that I moved up and fished from the cattle field to just below the top limit. Most activity around 3pm, had 14 fish from this section altogether, a couple on the adams, most on the hares ear nymph. The river fished quite well despite the lowish water, average size about 6 inches, biggest about 10 inches.
