Strong south-westerly winds are bringing in showers which will just keep topping the levels up nicely with a little fresh going in.

Despite the horrendous weather forecast for the 9th and 10th the river is unaffected and still running low and clear which is good for the beats below Carlisle.

On the 10th the hatches of invertebrate life just went on without ceasing all day, although the Grannom are now tapering off they have been replaced by many species of upwing. The trout have been responding very well with much surface activity throughout the whole day. Good movements of smolts are dropping down the river the last few days and sea trout moving up in fair numbers off each tide.


The biggest tide of the week on the 10th which brought quite a few salmon into the Eden just before the river began backing up.
