Just been looking on line , and it appears we have had a tiny bit of rain in the hills, the forecast is looking a tad more promising, but id like to check if the rivers have had a spate out to the west of me, i.e the Dinard.
I cant find a sepa station?

When i went over the Dionard at the end of June, the river was extremely low. May need a bigger flood than last week to bring fish in. Laxford was the same and Loch Stack at least 4 foot down with shallows all over the place.

Dionard in September

I spent a September week on the Dionard when it was very low two years ago and vowed I would never go back. It was an utterly dispiriting experience casting to the (very occasional) potted salmon. Duncan the gillie is a lovely man, and it must break his heart to see the river so low, but, quite honestly, my advice would be to save your money and await better times.

Unfortunately Donald, you were not lucky enough to see it like this.

Looking forward to seeing you when the shooting season starts.

There has been a lot of interest in fishing the Dionard on the Forum in the past and it has been difficult to get a week.
However, things have changed with new owners this year and there MAY be some availability where before there was none.
The letting is now being handled by George Goldsmith in Edinburgh so it might be worth a phone call but remember, it is very much a spate river and needs rain when you are there, not the week before.
