River Eden report Grinsdale/Beaumont January 2021.
A very wet and windy week and big water to start the new salmon season for 2021. The river levels rose over four and a half metres and spilling into the fields due to the storm Christoph. A few kelts caught above Carlisle as the water began to drop and clear, but nothing in the way of a spring fish reported yet. The water level on the 25th was at two and a half feet and dropping to two feet by the end day of the month, not ideal!
The fishery is closed until further notice due to Covid rules and travel restrictions, hopefully soon there will be some positive news.
River Eden report February 2021.
It was quite a high water for the beginning of February due to copious amount of rainfall; a dry but very cold spell from the east on its way which should drop water levels.
10th, the river is now at a good fish-able height for the fly. There are not many anglers out fishing on the water due to the current Covid restrictions, when these are lifted I think that we will see some action.
21st, a massive rise of water to 3.5m and the river into the fields, more poor weather due which will effectively end any hopes of fishing until the start of March. Not the best of starts to the new salmon season so far with the weather conditions and Covid restrictions, but something to look forward to as the best is yet to come!
River Eden report March 2021.
4th, river level at 1’3” and clear after a high pressure system lasting several days, a dry period allowing water levels to drop. A few kelts up and down the river and there was a report of a twenty four pound fish off Holmegate last week, by the picture it looks like it was a farmed fished with the disfigured jaws.
6th, David Noble fishing Low House had a twelve pound salmon to a Willie Gunn tube fly today, it may be the first salmon reported this season as far as I am aware. Not many out fishing at present due to the previous weeks of very high water and the Covid restrictions.
7th, water level remains steady at 1’2”. A fourteen pound salmon caught on the fly for the Warwick Hall beat today, an eight pound fish just upstream of Carlisle, the first of hopefully many more to come.
10th, river levels are now on the rise from overnight rain and strong south-westerly’s.
13th, the very big water continues with river levels at five feet plus, a drier period is forecast for the next week or so which hopefully may bring the river into a fish-able condition.
19th, river level is now approaching a good fishing height, with a few more days of dry weather prospects should be good. Glen Bainbridge had a fresh run fish of thirteen pounds above Carlisle today. Also a seven pound salmon from the Warwick hall beats.
20th, Mike Noble fishing Low House had an eight pound fish to a Willie Gunn, water clarity good and now a decent fishing height for the lower parts.
21st, water level now one foot three inches and clear, a fifteen pound salmon from the Carlisle area.
23rd, a seventeen pound salmon from the Carlisle area caught today.
25th, an eight pound salmon above Carlisle today, levels remain good and clear.
27th, a small rise of water levels from heavy showers and snow melt, poor weather on the way with high winds and heavy rain.
28th, a massive rise in water levels this morning from last night’s rain which will probably put the river into the fields today. Not the Eden’s best start to the 2021 season, it is nothing to do with numbers of fish in the river, but the Covid rules restricting people movement and poor cold, wet weather compared to the opposite we experienced last year. That is that for March unfortunately as far as fishing goes, be hopes for fair weather soon.
