Sunday 11th March.
Saturday's rain and snow melt has again put the river up to over 4ft today. This lift of mucky water will take a couple of days to run off but but by Tuesday (13th) and later this week the river should be clear and at a good level. As the date approaches mid March there should be fish in the river. Keep an eye on the levels and when the river falls back to 2ft it is definitely worth a cast for the first springer of 2018. Rods are available, Give me a call on 07787 505051 Anyone interested in a 2018 season rod is invited for a day as my guest in March. Andrew Lee
