Environment Agency Fisheries Officer Adrian Bicknell holds two salmon caught in the EA’s fish trap at Molesey on the River Thames - great proof that salmon are finding their way upriver to hopefully breed and boost future stocks of the species.

There seems to be a view that these fish are strays from other rivers rather than genuine Thames fish. I wonder if there is any evidence of salmon spawning in the Thames in recent years? Would be great to see Salmon back in abundance on the Thames! Tippet

These fish are almost as nice as the salmon that I caught from Shepperton Weir (river Thames) last September. I caught this fish on a lob worm cast right into the water under the weir and it fought like a demon and took 15 minutes to land. The fish was not tagged & I have not read or heard about any other salmon caught on the Thames in 2012 with a rod & line. Apologies for not using a fly to catch it but I am a coarse fisherman! Read the full story here: A Salmon from the river Thames-Sept 2012 | TheGentlemanAngler.com I am interested to know if any other anglers have caught a salmon from the Thames in recent years.
