The promised rain early in the week amounted to very little other than to maintain the previous weeks river height.
We ended the week with 9 fish and considering the many bright hours we have had on the river during week this a decent return for the efforts of the rods ,,most of the action centred around early mornings and late evenings.
Fresh fish were taken from the lower river for the most part however there are still a few making it higher up the system with a fresh fish caught at the top of beat 9.
We have had our first grilse this week and speaking to the Ghillie involved it appeared to be in excellent condition.
As many of us know these little torpedoes need little water to make their way through the system so I would expect to see a few more in the coming weeks.
Looking to next week we having building tides,and the cold nights are helping to keep the water temperature in the low 50sf to mid 50s. And as most non anglers would expect in Caithness the hot weather causes another effect, low sea cloud(fog) tends to push in which looks like it will give us intermittent cloud cover while the rest of the country will have glourous sunshine.
Tight lines to all visiting the river this coming week
