    I think it would be useful to split the catch returns on the Dove between Milldale to Illam Bridge and Dovedale Car Park to Illam Bridge.

    Seems to me the two sections are quite diverse.

    Whilst both sections attract the low life dog walkers who don’t understand, dogs to be kept in lead and who carefully collect poo in little black plastic bags to hang from trees or leave on a rock at the side of the path. The lower section definitely seems to have the higher concentration of grockles!

    I terms of fishing the upper section is also different in character.

    It would be good to have a clearer idea of how the two sections are fishing. I usually only fish down to Illam bridge and avoid busier Lowe part.

    As an aside. It is a wonderful river but often spoiled by the people who access the area without any regard to their responsibilities. The ideal scenario would be for the National Trust to actually have enforcement to prevent the littering and irresponsible dog owners abusing the area.
