    Default Rising Water

    A query, ive noticed that people seldom seem to catch fresh salmon when the water is on the rise but still seem to pick up kelts when its rising, is their a reason for this or are kelts more aggressive before they drop back to the sea?

    ........some of them have not eaten for the best part of a year Scoops. Dangle something in front of them and they will snap at it

    seems like that sometimes, didn't think they started eating before they return to salt water?

    First wee bit oh a rise can be great for fresh fish too, Scoops.

    Admittedly a very small window....but can be productive.

    Id agree with that, and a big rising river signals big Don browns for me

    Either or.....there are some great dry fly trout anglers on the Don who do nothing but devote their fishing solely to these specimen trout, and do very well....consistently....year in.....year out

    peaches and avacados
