Last week

(Last updated: Tuesday 13th February)

The first half of last week presented decent water conditions although by Wednesday overnight air temperatures had dipped to -5°C. Very few anglers on the river and the only reported fish were caught from the middle section of Applegarth. Fin Wilson managed half a dozen grayling including a brace of lovely 2lb fish.

The top fly was a Hare's Ear with orange thorax.

By the end of the week the weather again started to wreak havoc on river levels and the river has been either rising of falling over the past 5 days.


The river looks to remain unsettled for the next few days but the forecast looks much more promising from Saturday onwards. We will do another update at the end of the week with advice on water conditions and which beats to try.
