At long last the autumn rains have arrived and as I write this (21st September) the river is in spate for the first time since early May. Let’s hope the frustrated salmon anglers can enjoy some good fishing before the season ends at the end of the month.
For most of the summer fishing virtually came to a standstill, due to very low flows and high water temperatures. However during the last three weeks the trout fishing has improved with several rods reporting good catches both with a dry fly and nymph.
The low river levels have given us the opportunity to carry out much needed maintenance on most of the beats.
