Week Commencing 9th March 20.

Well it has been a little better, the river has still been unsettled and this weekend’s rain is already pushing the river up, hopefully not by too much. There is rain forecast for Tuesday and Friday but not too much. The rest of the week will have some sunshine but temperatures remain in single figures. The tides have peaked and there will be no new water till the end of the week.



At last a few more beats have got their season up and running.

Gordon Castle had their first fish on Thursday morning, Tony Palmer caught it from Beat 3, the second soon followed on Friday.
