(Last updated: Sunday 15th July)
The week ended with the level at Sprouston -1" and the water temperature is 70.
Looking at the availability for this coming week I would recommend the Pedwell and Horncliffe beats should have a chance of some action this week.
The forecast this coming week, On Tuesday there will be sunny spells and a few isolated showers. Overnight, clear spells. Wednesday, sunny spells and the risk of a few showers again. Overnight, dry with clear spells. Thursday, a bright start then cloud will increase. There is a risk of rain edging in from the west overnight.
As always I would like to thank all those who provide me with the information to make this report, it is very much appreciated. If you have any information or photo's you would like included please get in touch with Martin on 07825334427 or firstname.lastname@example.org
With water levels getting back towards summer levels and the water temperature being in the late 60's Floating lines with poly leaders on the end should cover most fishing conditions at the moment. Dressed flies around a size 12 to 14 should be the order of the day, I would suggest are Copper Cascade, Stenton Shrimp, Gledswood Shrimp, Kylie Shrimp, Editor and Sunray Shadow should bring success. If you like to give the spinner a go, Rapala or Toby should bring results.
As always come prepared and always listen to the advice of your boatman or ghillie. If you're needing to top up your fly box ahead of your trip please check out www.taysalmonfly.co.uk
