Low, low

Fishing has been extremely difficult this week with very low water and cold NE winds. As the week went on the river got lower and lower and very difficult to fish. The gauge now stands at -5cms which is low but I have often seen it lower.

There are a few fish in the river but they are being extremely cagey and are not playing at all.

It must be said that people have tried hard but to no avail. Our last fish was Friday 30th March but it looks like we are going to get a change in the weather from Sunday which hopefully will bring shoals of springers streaming up the river.

By the time my next blog is written it should be the fish that are doing all the talking.
