Too much water

Sunday, April 12th, 2009

River is in flood making fishing impossible. Some heavy rain and huge storms run through the region last night.

Storks bring hope

Friday, April 10th, 2009

There is no return now – storks came back last week. River is still high and very cold, but the nature is awake – flowers, trees, grass makes you smile more. Fishing is not too good, however insisting you can get your proper sized trout. Grayling start gathering for their long awaited spawning – I think this is a question of maximum 14 days.

Snow melts

Monday, March 30th, 2009

River totally unfisheable. Melting snow made it too high and coffe coloured. Usually it doesn’t last longer than 2-3 weeks, so I hope for some good streamer fishing in the second half of April.

The Czech angler

Friday, March 20th, 2009

Few days fishing with Zee, our Czech friend that you might meet when guiding some of our groups, especially on the Dunajec. Nice winter here, water quite low, but the trout didn’t react to streamers at all. Nymphing was successful, but main catch was grayling, which made it not very ethical in this time of year and we abandoned it. In next days it only got colder and uglier. Water is sooo cold.

Where's the spring?

Thursday, March 5th, 2009

River stays low, even very low. Once the snow starts melting it will certainly rise and get coloured for longer time as there is plenty of snow in the mountains. Fish not really cooperating, which is normal at low water in winter.

This won’t be about the river..

You can meet Jeremy Lucas on the spring show in Newark. You can find him on one of the following stands – Fish&Fly, Hardy Greys or GAIA. Feel free to ask him everything about our holidays to the San river.

Back in business

Friday, February 6th, 2009

With Hansjoerg, Martin and Richard we went on this beautiful day to check is there any fish left in the San. High cold water made them a bit lazy, still I managed to get two good trout around 50cm and a bloody huge huchen, which I estimate was 10-12 kilos. Good start of the year :)

Happy New Year

Monday, January 5th, 2009

Surprisingly since early December water is being dropped from the lake. Probably guys at the dam are afraid after last summer’s dam integrity check by the huge flood.
This is the first real winter since 3 years, with a lot of snow. Temperatures as usually in January lower than in a freezer..

Last cold this year

Wednesday, December 31st, 2008

The year as usually ends with some significant cold – around minus 20 at night. Not much warmer during the day, so obviously no fishing. This was a tough year to us – fishing was not at its best due to horrible weather conditions and the biggest flood since 30 years. House construction has been a nightmare with unreliabe builders. But it is over now. We hope for a fantastic 2009 and will put more news from river San on 2009 river reports.website. Tight lines!

December's surprise

Friday, December 12th, 2008

Water is high and cold, but this river has simply the most amazing fishing on the planet. Imagine that in December, with a fairly low temperature, on  ice cold water there is lots of flies, and fish rise to take them!!! In an hour fishing I had 7 good size grayling and a trout. All on dry flies!
