A change in the weather

After 3 cold days we have got our summer back and today is warm, windless and feels much more like June.

Yesterday provided a great day at Middle with the 12 rods beaching 71 fish; Hugo M had a very productive afternoon and took 10 fish to his own rod. At Pana they had 25 fish, all below camp but two rods are going to take the float trip today to see how many fish have got to the upper reaches which will be an interesting experiment.

Last night we flew to Kitza to do the mid week changeover and we bought back 8 very happy rods who had taken 94 fish in their 3 days over there with fish caught around camp and at the top of the beat. The very relaxed team who we took to Kitza had 41 fish for their time at Lower.

And then downstream - it looks perfect

Yesterday afternoon the team here went to look around the village and then spent time in camp so the home pools are well rested for the rods that we have here now and Ian E went out for an hour or so after supper last night and landed two fish as well as losing two others.

The water has now stopped rising and has pretty much levelled off without starting to drop yet and with the water temperature rising to 9 degrees this morning it is all set for a much nicer day to be fishing.
