Overnight rain belted down on the tin roof last night loud enough to wake me up a couple of times. The rain hasn’t brought the river up too much and is on 34cumec at 8:45 am and didn’t look all that coloured up. Keep an eye on the flow tho as rain up in the ranges might still have an effect on it today. The cold gusty westerly wind might keep things interesting and it might be the right day to pull the sinking lines and the Spey gear from off the rack and swing some streamers. Good chance of some fresh silver Rainbows hitting the river to take of this small flush. It may also bring more recovering fish down from the spawning streams. With baby Trout becoming evident I expect to see a few more Brown Trout taking up residence on the edges in the coming weeks. They can be cagey fellas to get an eat from but bring on the sight fishing challenge I say.
On our evening walks we are seeing and hearing the splashes from fish taking Mayfly from off the surface, I haven’t seen any Caddis activity yet but they can’t be too far off.
It’s clearing up after the overnight rain

No matter the weather a nice cuppa while taking a break from the fishing is always welcome. The Yeti 12oz Rambler is the perfect addition to the day pack.
