Spring might be in the air, but sadly no springers on the bank! Lots of kelts are still are still being caught, but that is all the action we have had. The fish pass stopped running at the end of the week and we had hoped that this would mean any running fish would hold up in beats 12 and 13,but more rain at the weekend has given us another rise in the river and water is flowing down the fish pass again.
Walking the beats at the weekend showed no real damage after the spates of early January. It was also good to see signs of spring, the snow drops have started to show themselves and the first skylarks were singing.
Tight lines to all the rods out this week.
