9th May; a warm and sunny day with a north wind, trout activity was at around zero for most of the day and the hatches sparse. Low water conditions and clear. The barometer is dropping like a stone and there is a mackerel sky; there is a front of heavy rain on the way.
10th May; heavy rain overnight has put the levels up by three meters and it is very coloured with flotsam, by the afternoon the whole river is now unfishable. Persistent rain for the next day or so will keep conditions poor for the next couple of days.
11th May; the river has dropped by three feet today but still unfishable. A dry day tomorrow and until the evening Sunday when there is more of the wet stuff forecast.
