(Last updated: Sunday 5th August)
The week ended with the level at Sprouston 3" and the water temperature is 65.
Looking at the availability for this coming week I would recommend the Tillmouth, Ladykirk, Pedwell, Horncliffe and Tweedhill beats should have a chance of some action this week.
The forecast this coming week, Fairly cloudy on Tuesday with some drizzle or light showers for a time. Some occasional sunshine is possible. A breezy and cool day. Overnight, some spots of drizzle may linger. Wednesday will see a band of rain tracking north-east. The rain may be heavier overnight. On Thursday, it will remain unsettled and cool with spells of showery rain, some heavy and thundery.
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 email@example.com
With water levels getting back towards summer levels and the water temperature being in the 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
