River in Spate
Not the biggest spate we have had,, but the biggest for 6 months! yesterday's rain fell on wet ground, this coupled with a full loch has given us a rise to around 30 inches overnight, hopefully this will clear out a lot of muck that has accumulated in the river. Having said that it does mean that it is going to be difficult for some of the beats today, the lower beats in particular are going to be limited to where they can fish is this height of water and with the water carrying a lot of colour it might be hard going.
We should start to see fish that have been lying off-shore for many months run the river during the next week or so. It is going to be an interesting week ahead.
