    i reckon its known as a salmon river so you can bet its well looked after... and also it runs through some nice rural areas so the fish get time to develop without an ever changing enviroment... whatever it is though it seems to work

      i also think its down to the numbers of dace in the river... most other rivers seem to have declining dace populations in recent years and the wye's seem to be going from strengh to strengh... i think the huge numbers of dace give the other fish time to grow as the dace are the main targets for the predators

          Mainly those weights are by anglers who hardly put a float out on a commercials, not that they would not fare ok on them.

            I think the fish has just thrived on neglect over the last few years.

              All of the resons above imo, i think there is defiantley alot bigger head of dace in that river. I also think there are alot of dace in the river severn though aswell, not on the scale of the wye but it's just with so many barbel prominent in the river severn, if you pay your match fee to go and fish for dace you'll never win anything back as barbel will always outscore silvers most the time. In the summer Nigel Ball had just under 30lb of dace on the stick, an example of they are there but just not targeted so much. Dave harrell also had a nice catch of dace up at shrewsbury doing simliar methods to what he does on the wye i think.

                          Pete,

                          it could be that the fish are migratory ... the areas outside of town can be devoid in the winter whilst all the silver fish shoal up between the bridges at Belmont.
                          The roach are quite amazing .... pound are average stamp!!!

                              Is that pleasure fishing or a match Pete?

                              I'm fishing the teams of six on sunday ... so can give you some gen on how it's fishing if you need.

                              My season started badly on your canal ... and hasn't got much better!
                              i've had a few section wins and a second on the Severn, but that's about it!
                              still better than working all weekend though!

                              had 41lb of roach on the Wye festival - to win my 5 peg section!

                              how about your's?
