A perfectly timed rise in water height on Sunday raised the river and, for the first time since May, brought the water temperature down to single fingers. Both factors were beneficial, and anglers took advantage of these conditions to land 44 fish during the week.

As we slip into the final week of the season, there is a distinctly autumnal feel to the conditions with a weather forecast to match. If correct, the wind may become challenging at times but at least, there should be no shortage of water!

While the continued unsettled weather and the rain showers it brought were a useful aid in keeping the river topped up this week, the accompanying wind was rather less welcome and rendered the conditions extremely challenging at times. Considering anglers reported that the fish were never fully "on", the final tally of 49 was very respectable.

The rain and changeable weather during the first half of the week saw multiple rises in water height and made for an unsettled river. While fish were caught from midweek onwards, 12 in all, their response was rather less than had been hoped and the total number was certainly not helped by the return to summer weather on Saturday.

Considering the conditions anglers were faced with during most of the week, a return of 9 fish was more than might possibly have been expected and highlights the importance of picking your moment.

With the water height still marginally above zero, the week started encouragingly with four fish caught on Monday. However, despite favourable overhead conditions and a welcome southerly wind through much of the week, fish were unresponsive showing little or no interest resulting in no further fish being landed. As has been the case on many occasions this season, a good drop of rain would be most welcome to freshen things up!
