Thankfully, a cooler start to last week helped to lower the water temperature that had been rising to worrying levels, and although still without rain, anglers managed to land 3 fish during this time before the heatwave kicked in. With a more unsettled forecast for the week ahead, we live in hope.

With no sign of the drought that is gripping the north breaking, it was remarkable that anglers caught 10 fish across the river this week. Once again, careful angling pressure has been applied with loch trout fishing filling in between the visits. This approach has benefits for both the anglers and the fish.

With the river still sitting below summer levels the rain we received on Wednesday, although not heavy, was certainly most welcome and sufficient to add an extra inch to the water height. This slight rise, coupled with careful fishing effort, helped as we added 9 fish to the book this week. As is so often the case with fresh grilse, many others were lost, although the fun is always in hooking them! Unorthodox flies have again accounted for fish this week as trout tactics continue to be adopted.

As the wait for rain continues across the north, the fishing has proved difficult again this week with soaring temperatures and blue skies on many days. The wind so badly needed for low water success was absent for much of the week and without a ripple, fish were easily seen in the pools – as were anglers by the fish! With cloud and wind making a rare appearance together, the only 3 fish caught for the week were taken on Tuesday, all were sea-liced grilse and two were caught on a trout fly. Anglers who headed to the hill lochs in search of trout did have success, but found that trout, like salmon, also have a dislike of the sun!

Changeable weather conditions throughout the week, including a day of wetter weather on Thursday, gave hope of a more significant rise in water levels. Unfortunately, the resulting rise only equated to an extra 1.5 inches though this was enough to see a substantial increase in action for anglers. With 6 entries in the book and numerous other connections, fish were seen running all the way through the system and gave sport on all the beats.
