    Hi all,
    I've managed to pursuade my better half that we have a few days near Mach this weekend. Planning on a couple of day tickets for the Upper reaches. How's this drop of rain likely to change things, and are there many fish about?
    Tight lines.

    Never got enough rain at all its pretty much back down to summer low already. We had a small rise but only stired the muck off the bottom really ,theirs fish about but how far up the river the main runs are is anyone's guess. Their should be a few up their but daytime water will have run off by then

    OK cool. Thank you. So it's night fishing then. I hope I get one night then. I have in the past fished doctors pool and Holly Bush but wondered whether I'd try night fishing in the runs just upstream of the confluence with the Twymyn. Worth a go or stick with the main pools?

    Finally got to the Dyfi last week 12th & 13th , flag day on the 12th no flag on the 13th. River was about 1800 on the Weds , lower and clear by the next day.
    Caught quite a few coloured sea trout up to 5lb on the Weds , but as I was spinning not the ideal but all went back ok except 1 fat sewin about a 1lb , which was very tasty.
    Thursday was ideal for fly fishing I would have thought , managed 1 nice sea trout early on but nothing else other than a couple of sewin , heard of 2-3 salmon caught with one at 13lb , I was hoping for a salmon but a very enjoyable couple of days with the sea trout which I had thought were over for this year. Not many fishing considering the conditions. After the very dry summmer the Dyfi looks in good shape to me and plenty more water forecast.

    Thanks for the report, reservoirrobert: always good to hear of some catches in what has been a very quiet season.
    I was interested that you use the term "sewin" to mean a small seatrout. This seems to be a common usage on the Dyfi, and perhaps some other rivers, but elsewhere in Wales "sewin" is used as a synonym for "sea trout" of all sizes, and in the distant past, sewin were thought to be a separate species, unique to Wales.

    Yes Paul I was using the term that seems to be used on the Dyfi for a small sea trout , I suppose a maiden or grilse sea trout.
    Funny thing is from an eating point of view, it seems at this time of year a fair few anglers are hoping for a nice fat sewin , although it's now too late for that on the Dyfi.
    It was nice to catch one or two fish as I had resigned myself to not getting any this year after the summer we've had and also reports that there weren't many around , although I did hear of quite a few nice sea trout caught whilst I was there.

    Sorry about the delay posting an update but just been busy.
    I went a couple of times to the Dyfi since my last post once for a couple of days and secondly for the last full week of the season. Managed a couple of salmon and a few sea trout , the surprising thing was the lack of anglers , on the last full week although conditions were not great Monday to Thursday , ( but not terrible ) , and the big flood Friday & Saturday ( virtually unfishable Fri & Sat ) I didn't see another angler on the river all week.
    I wonder if the lack of activity on the forum reflects the lack of activity on the banks.

    Well done John , I'm assuming that was the last Monday of the season after the big flood on the Saturday. Nice way to end the season , I'm hoping for some night fishing in 2019.
