THE epPEn SEVERN AND VERNIEW, &C. Salmon angling closes in the Severn fishery district on Saturday. It has been the best season for the rod ever known, about one hundred salmon have been killed. A good rod season of course means a bad one for the nets, and the nets above Shrewsbury have caught considerably less salmon than the rods. The fish taken by the rods were all caught above the mouth of the Verniew, and only three of them in the Severn. Some very fine fish have been landed by the rods-24Jb" 251b., 2(Jlb., being at the head of the list. Nearly all the fish were taken in the Verniew and Banw, the latter being unusually productive. Contrary to the usual custom, but few fish have been taken in October. The "water has been so low the whole of the month that there has been but little chance, although the rivers are alive with fish- such abundance of fish I have never seen before. Salmon anglers may be congratulated on having made the best score ever recorded in the district, and of fish worth catching, while their condition was good, as I before remarked, but few have fallen to the rod this month, when they are of little value, except in a sporting point of view. A good 201b. "kipper" will, however, show some fine sport, and they are better out of the water than in-there are too many male fish at present. The rivers are now lower than they have been all the year, in fact, they are at summer level.—A. (October 29), in The Field.
