With three weeks remaining of our season the wait for much needed rain in the north of Scotland continues. Despite this we continue to produce steady catches with a very respectable 20 fish in the book for the week. Colder nights have helped keep water temperatures below 60 Fahrenheit ( 15c) all week and with steady to strong winds it all coincided to help our visiting anglers throughout the week. The weather forecast is predicting heavy periods of rain throughout the weekend and into next week so fingers crossed we get some sort of rise in water levels which will bring the thousands of fish in the river back on the take.
It certainly had that feel of autumn in the air this week with the nights drawing in and farmers working through the night harvesting their crops and our usual winter visitors with greylag and pink foot geese returning for the winter.
We also say goodbye to our summer visitors with the ospreys departing for Spain and north Africa along with sand Martins, swifts to name but a few.
Tight lines and safe travels to all visiting us next week
