    Default Ribble 2018

    I thought I'd start up the Ribble thread for the new sea trout season.
    Tight lines everyone.
    Paul.

    I don't get to fish the Ribble often, and I'm not really a salmon-fisher, but I'd be up for a get-together in the summer, especially if seatrout are on the agenda.

    when you say a meet for sea trout fishing do you mean fishing for them at night ?

    Not necessarily. I haven't yet fished the Ribble at night, although I'd like to give it a go sometime - but a daytime meet would be good too, if only to have a look around.

    Hi Paul
    I met up with John (jsflyfisher) tonight while he was up visiting his family.
    He's up for a fishing on the Ribble in the summer time, but we've discussed it would be better fishing the river when there's water on & the fish are running. It would be pointless him traveling up the fish the river on it's bones.
    So we've decided that I'll keep an eye on the weather & when there's a good chance the river is in flood & I'll get in touch with John to give him a couple of days notice, when there's water on.
    I will post on here has soon as I contact John & anyone interested to joining us are more than welcome to do so.
    The beat we intend to fish will be the EA stretch at Mitton.
    Regards Paul.

    Thanks, Paul. I'll hope to join you. I know the Mitton beat, as I've fished the PA water on the other bank.

    I had a session out on the Ribble the other night, a bit early for the pool I fish but the warm weather just made me want to get out & see if any sea trout have made their way up river.
    I didn't see any moving & never had any. I only managed a couple of small trout & a good sized chub that nearly ripped the rod out of my hand when it took, these fish get your heart thumping for a second but it doesn't take long before your know what's on the end.
    We could do with a good flood to bring the fish up TBH.

    Most of the sea trout on the Ribble run late June to early July unless we get plenty of water, which we haven't had a flood for over a month.
