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.

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

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.
