I arrived just before lunch time on the river and my first thought was "Who pulled the plug". The river was at its lowest I've seen in a long time.
Looking downstream on which is normally a very good moving piece of water for the trout
Even the normally fast water feeding this stretch was more like a trickle.
A nice fish with perfect fins and a golden belly, I was well pleased especially in the conditions. I headed downstream casting here and there in the odd deeper stretches but nothing was doing at all, so headed farther downstream to where I knew some better fish normally lie, to be met with this sight...
A trickle again and the water that was there was only a couple of inches deep. I sat for a half hour observing and saw nothing so decided to call it a day and head home contented that in such difficult conditions I had still managed to take a decent trout on my last trip of the 2014 Brown Trout season....I love the summer fishing but adore the Grayling, I'm just hoping this year the weather will be kinder and we can all enjoy the lady of the stream .
