(Last updated: Monday 23rd February)
Week beginning the 16th February.
It was all change this week on the river.
Monday started a more settled day and river in good order but water levels dropping slightly from over the weekend.
Tuesday Wednesday became very cold and windy and this lead to a rise in water from the Teviot and Ettrick into Thursday. Only the bravest of Anglers were out on the river where shelter was to be found.
Friday and Saturday were more settled and gave better conditions for fishing.
The water temperature were also fluctuating during the week and continues into the beginning of this week. Temperatures rose to around 6C in the middle part of the week and as I write, has gone down to 2.3C.
These changes have certainly helped in bringing a small amount of fresh running fish into the river and a number of beats recorded their first fresh of the season which is always good news. The beats off and running last week were Ladykirk, Boleside, Mertoun, Sprouston, Bigham Dub and Upper Hendersysde all with fish to report and a few with sea lice.
Well done all for braving some harsh conditions last week on the river. The forecast for this week is mainly unsettled with wind, rain and low temperatures but hopefully becoming more settled and warmer at the end of the week.
On a positive note I am hearing from ghillies that they were seeing fresh fish moving into their beats during the week which is encouraging. Not huge numbers but still good to hear and keeps the optimism in our veins running high.
A cracking fish that I did hear of caught from Jacks Plum Pool on the Teviot was a lovely fourteen pound springer caught by Christopher Noble back on the 13th of February, well done Christopher, a cracker! Always good news to hear of the Teviot picking up the odd fish which is great for the time of the year.
