  • River Dee at Farndon

    got a club match here on Sunday the 26th of september. l have not fished there for quite a few years so just asking if anybody has fished the area recently.
    l believe we are fishing the stretch directly down stream from the bye pass bridge on the Wrexham road. l have not fished this particular stretch at all so wondering wether its a stick float or feeder approach. also what baits have been most successful, one guy has mentioned that he has done well fishing hemp and tares but thats not something l am really that good at.
    l am going to try and get there sometime prior to the 26th and at least have a look at the stretch and maybe even have a session on there, so any advise / tips gratefully recieved

      well l had a good walk down beat 7, but there were no anglers there today. the water was up a little l would say as one of the two platforms was about 10 inches under water.
      the water looked quite peaty in colour but not dirty or cloudy. didnt see any fish topping at all. the venue though did look quite nice. some of the pegs though do look a trifle trecherous and a spade for digging some steps might be a good idea, also a length of rope would be good but not many places to secure it so it will be a case of taking lots of care when getting down to the river next week or end up going for a swim
      went further down into Farndon itself to look at the free section where there were a few anglers about but on the whole they were not catching too much, so just hoping the weathers turns a bit milder and drier for next sunday.

          hi waglerman, sorry l have only just found your question mate.
          l should have fished a match there last sunday but it was called off due to the river being too high according to the local bailiff.
          l had a drive over there the weekend before and the water was over the top of a couple of the fishing stages on beat 7 down by the castle remains.
          a few guys were fishing the free section but not much was being caught.
          if you have ventured there today l expect that after the rain we had in the area over the last week then the water levels will be even higher than previously and its pouring down again today so hoping that you didnt waste time going there as it will be hard l expect.
