Up river

Yesterday was an encouraging change. We had a slow morning with only 3 fish landed and little other action. This was a surprise as various pools are beginning to really form. The afternoon picked up however and we had 7 fish with 3 to Richard G fishing up river.

Fresh one to the net
Finding fish up river has meant we have had a beat switch and the guys who have never seen the upper river will get a taste of it today. Let’s hope more fish have moved in to make it a really special end to the week.  The water temperature is back at 6 and the depth on the gauge is -6”. Consequently those fishing heavier tips are still most often rewarded.

Middle had a mixed day yesterday. Top rod Yury D had a tough day whilst others did better. They ended the day on 25 fish including 2 fish caught at Peartiha during a post supper fishing party with beers and music. I think the island is still spinning a bit this morning for a few.

Ian W's casual approach to the trip to the white sea
At Pana they landed 24 fish for the day and the majority were caught in the now defining pools. The river is dropping away steadily but a lot of the fish seem to be piling through. The sooner the river gets to it’s normal level the sooner these pools will hold the fish up. Much the same can be said for Kitza. However this morning Charlie T went out and started his account with 2 fish before breakfast.

Vodka Cocktails at the white sea beach club
Today is warm and sunny again. Our team took a tour to the white sea before supper last night and had a little drinks party at Kuzamon. However they were out in double quick time this morning with the knowledge that fish are showing up river. I have asked them for 30 for the day…
