Hi all just want say hello. I fish the Ribble as frequently as I can. I fish in the day time as I had a stroke and it's not safe for me at night.

Hi, Ribblefisher. I've had a few tries at the Ribble, but had no sea trout there yet. Whereabouts do you fish it? Do you get much success?

Hi Paul, I sometimes fish at Mitton, had Trout but not Sea Trout yet. I prefer to fish spinners. There are loads of small fish. I think the fish go after these. Regards Ribblefisher

Welcome on board Ribblefisher
I think your best chance of sea trout in the day time spinning will be when the river is in spate with small mepps, I've only ever had a couple on spinners but I don't really target them other than at night on the fly.

Hi Haptonlad, You will probably know if it is safe for me to try early evening fly fishing for Sea Trout anywhere on the Ribble. I would be interested in what you think.
Regards Ribblefisher

You could put your name down to join PAAS their have some good accessible waters where you can park next to the river, with nice shingle pools.
The post office stretch & on the opposite bank with easy access to & from the pools.
There's usually a 2 year waiting list, it's good value for money.
I'm sorry to hear about your stroke RF.
Keep in touch & I could take you on as a guest on my club water.
Paul.

Hi Paul, In In PA. but I am concerned about fishing in the dark on my own!
Ribblefisher
I used to be in the PAAS but I dropped out 2 yrs ago.
If I were still in the club we could have met up on the Post Office stretch, there's a pool there right at the side of the car park that a few members fish for sea trout. It's east accessible & wading is no trouble at all.
Have you fished on the Post Office stretch ?
If not you could go & have a look in low water in day light to see what you think RF
Cheers Paul.

Hi Paul,Is this pool a good holding pool for the Sea Trout?
Ribblefisher
I don't know TBH but this pool is deep on the opposite bank & the pool below is also very deep on the inside bend, so I would expect them to hold fish, which will push up into the tails & shallow runs at night. The down side is you get a lot of barble anglers that fish into the night, but they tend to fish in the deep slow pools.
