At last some rain!
I've been out on the river the last couple of days and the levels have been as low as I've ever seen them. The client I was with yesterday couldn't believe how warm the water felt.
There were a few sea trout visible in the deep pools but they've been there for some time and were in a fugue. The small wild browns were still up for some sport though!
I've been expecting rain all day and there have been a few drops but nothing more, but finally, at last, some serious rain. It started about an hour ago with an orchestra of thunder and a lightning spectacular, it's now settled to just good heavy rain that will soon be finding its way into lakes and tributaries and from there into the rivers.
I can visualise the local anglers getting their gear ready to get out onto the water tomorrow, and I'll be there too! If this keeps up the migratories will start to move again.
It's forecast to be dry tomorrow and Tuesday and then more rain on Wednesday and Thursday, here's hoping it's enough to fill the lakes and rivers!
