It's raining

It is raining up here today. It is also cooler. Conditions are therefore not the most comfortable for a day on the river at present (around 9am). However there are spells of brightness when the sun breaks through so hopefully conditions will improve as the day warms up. The river continues to run at an attractive fishable level.

Easter Sunday

Some overnight rain but not much. Not enough to change the river level significantly. Still nice conditions for April. Cloudy but bright. This picture, taken yesterday just below Musgrave Bridge shows the very fishable level of the river at present.

Good conditions

Once again conditions are good for early season. The river continues to run clear at a nice fishable level. The weather is fine, overcast, but relatively bright with the sun trying to break through. There was no overnight frost and temperatures are now quite mild. All looks well for those wishing to venture out in April.

Good Friday Good Conditions

At 7.30am the weather is mild and predicted to remain so for the next day or two. The sun is trying to break through the clouds so the day is bright. The river remains clear at a great level for fishing. Conditions over the Easter weekend may just tempt some of us out for the first time this season.

Blue Skies Sunshine and Very Cold

A beautiful day here in Kirkby Stephen today. Blue skies and sunshine with the River Eden running clear at a nice level for fishing. But cold, still very cold. However some fly life is evident. Good luck to those willing to give it a try.
