(Last updated: Sunday 20th May)
The week ended with the level at Sprouston 4" and the water temperature is 55.
Looking at the availability for this coming week I would recommend the Tweedhill, Horncliffe, Ladykirk and Pedwell, Rutherford beats should have a chance of a springer this week.
The forecast this coming week, It will be mainly dry but largely cloudy at first on Tuesday. However, it will brighten up with long sunny spells expected later in the day. Feeling cooler in moderate north-easterly winds. Wednesday and Thursday will be fine with plenty of sunshine and just a little cloud. It will feel increasingly warm. Some mist or low cloud may form after dusk.
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 finally starting to drop in and water temperatures starting to rise Floating lines with poly leaders on the end should cover most fishing conditions at the moment. Dressed flies around a size 8 to 10 should be the order of the day, I would suggest are Copper Cascade, Girnel Shrimp, Gledswood Shrimp, Underghillie and Sunray Shadow should bring success. If you like to give the spinner a go, Rapala, Toby or Flying C 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
