Prospects for coming week

(Last updated: Monday 14th August)

River levels are reflecting true summer conditions and sadly there is not a lot of rain forecast for the week after Monday into Tuesday morning. However, as we know, forecasters can get it wrong, so let's hope that some rain will reach the river and give us an even small rise to help bring some of the grilse that are evident in the lower river further upstream.

One beat was successful using a muddler last week and fishing late. Dinnet ghillie Al Peake recommends fishing deep particularly in the bright weather. But as we know the main thing is to have a fly in the water because if you don't you certainly won't catch a fish.

As ever, listen to your ghillie!
