It did rain and there is a little more to come later in the week. Much of the rain just soaked into the ground but it has given us a small lift in the river and we are now at 5 inches, the last time it was this high was May! We had good fishing yesterday, with good overcast and breezy conditions. Today the water is slightly coloured and next to know wind. The slight rise should tempt the fish out of the lower beats and up into the main river, but it might not be until tomorrow to see the full effect.
