28/9/2021 We start in the back date department from the renowned UK Hampshire Hogs fly anglers, on their annual visit to the Waterville Fishery last week so here is their report take it away, it’s all yours Hampshire Hogs.


     Hampshire Hogs Fishing out of                        Waterville Boats and at  


       World Famous Butlers Pool at             


Hi Vincent, after nearly 2 years absence it was great to finally land back in Waterville and get fishing! The first couple of days on the lake were very tough, a few trout coming to the fly and troll and the occasional salmon seen but not in the taking mood. Whether they are still on the bottom waiting for cooler or more water or have already run upstream is anybody’s guess. We decided to mix up the fishing with mornings on the Butlers Pool, afternoons on the lake and a couple of visits to Copal lake thrown in. The salmon in the pool proved more obliging, with a 13 pounder for Nigel Henshaw, an 8 pounder for Trevor Dewberry and 5 grilse across 4 days for Peter Ruffle, plus 4 fish lost while being played. 

A total of around 50 trout to 3 1/2 lbs, plus some fair-sized brownies, were landed between us over the six days from Currane and Copal. In all, another great trip to Waterville and now the long wait until next spring before we can try again.

Now to today’s facts, all that was reported was just a few Trout caught on the drift. In the Salmon department all quiet on the SW front. Wind West light and veered NW this evening, reasonable cloud cover followed by heavy hale showers at times.
