Merry Christmas and the very best wishes for the New Year.
2018 turned out to be a very poor season for salmon fishing on the river Usk and the UK. The reasons for this could be many so a project has been launched by the AST focusing on rivers in Scotland to establish the root causes for the continued decline in salmon stocks.
Below is a link to a booklet providing more information on their Missing Salmon Project:
Let’s hope for a turn around in salmon numbers running UK rivers however more than luck is likely required to ensure the survival of the salmon. Organisations such as the AST and the Wye and Usk Foundation need our support to make this a realistic ambition.
