At long last we are getting some much needed rain. Hopefully this will encourage some sea trout into the river although there doesn't appear to be many in the estuary at the moment.
The best of the brown trout fishing is in the Pitlessie area where there is good cover and feeding for the trout. Below Springfield there is little or no weed in the river. This is very worrying as it points to a problem in the ecosystem. It impacts on fly life and habitat for trout as they have no cover from predators. We are working with SNH to try and identify the problem and come up with a solution.
