Bankside Report - Sea Trout

What a difference to this time last year when we'd suspended sea trout fishing due to the drought. Not ideal for beach holidays at the moment but great to see good water levels on the Ouse throughout the early part of the 2023 season. I'll kick off what I intend to be more regular updates with sea trout news. We had a run in early June with reports from five of our anglers catching or hooking fish during this period with one taking multiple fish. Congratulation to one of our young sea trout enthusiasts Billy Gardiner Cross whose persistence was rewarded in early June. Details on our new sea trout catches page.

Well done Billy! We didn't have much reported in late June through July. However I saw several sea trout jump while carp fishing at Cowlease on Friday 4th Aug, so we can speculate that the good water levels and recent big tides have prompted a fresh run. I'm really keen to hear from any of our sea trout anglers who make a catch or see sea trout in the river. This is not only because I love chatting about fishing! It also allows us to give new or perspective new members an up to date assessment before they join. Coarse update to follow. Please email any catch photos to the address on the footer of this site.
