About fishing

Friday, September 10th, 2010

The weather is clumsy – quite warm, but we have rain every day so the river is a bit coloured. Fishing is very strange – one day can be good with reasonable amount of fish rising, another gives you an impression of fishing a swimming pool – not a single rise troubles the surface. As usually at this time of year little trout attack anything that moves. Grayling are nailed to the bottom and rarely you see one rising regularly. Hatches are not constant yet, mainly olives, but still some sedges appear. It rains just now, hope it doesn’t spoil the fishing any more.

Olives

Sunday, September 5th, 2010

After serious rain we had our first day fishing in surprisingly good conditions – fish took hundreds of BWO’s, not as eagerly though as the swallows. If hatches continue we might get some decent fishing finally! Meanwhile it started raining and it is sooo cold!

Real olive and it's love dolls

For a change

Friday, September 3rd, 2010

We went to the forest to check if there were any mushrooms. The feast we had afterwards with deer in fresh mushrooms cannot be described.

Watering the lawn

Wednesday, September 1st, 2010

Luckily the rain came and stayed with us for 3 days watering the garden. River unfisheable…

Very warm

Friday, August 27th, 2010

Last few days were very warm, up to 29 degrees. What is interesting the nights are as warm as days. Few days ago there was 23 degrees at 5 AM. Fishing is slow – few more day and it will be ok.

River low

Sunday, August 15th, 2010

The river dropped to the minimal flow. It gets very warm during the day, the evenings and nights are cold – temperatures drop to 10 degrees. You can sense the summer getting to an end with my most favourite time of year knocking on the door.

Hard

Thursday, August 12th, 2010

Sylvain and his group has fished the river for few days. Very hard fishing with fish almost inactive and not much hatches going on. This isn’t so unusual for August, but this time it was extreme. I caught a reasonable trout when landed it it split in my hand a handful of shrimps – I don’t get it how could that amount fit in his stomach! I think this is the reason of fish being inactive – all the floods and high water have given them so much free food that they won’t bother rising to pick up a lovely CDC sedge…

Back in where it should be

Saturday, August 7th, 2010

The water is back where it usually was, which doesn’t mean it is low and clear. However the level dropped quite suddenly and made fishing possible.

Benchmark

Wednesday, July 28th, 2010

We can us the benchmark again – the overflows are opened! If this isn’t the worst year on the San, I don’t want to see a worse one.

Rain – hurray!

Sunday, July 25th, 2010

We haven’t seen rain lately – here it is! River level rose, some local floods happened on little streams. Temperatures are exceeding 13 degrees…

Oh, did I say I’m happy to be away? :-)
