I have recieved an email from Craig Robinson Environmental Impacts Group – Fisheries Research Services
I am writing having seen your River Kelvin website, and I have a request to make, but first I will give some background to it.
The Food Standards Agency (FSA) has a remit to [...]
For some reason the last few posts have become mixed up – I will summarize the last one here and rewrite the giant hogweed post – all the comments have been lost unfortunately
Warm and muggy – I managed a few hours on the river. Driving there was hell, I seemed [...]
After work I needed to fish – Initially decided the Clyde however at the point in the road where I had to make the final decision I made a sharp left turn and headed to the Kelvin. Mostly because it would mean I would get more time to fish but also because I have been [...]
The water is warmer than the air – I kept telling myself that as I was catching juvenile trout and parr aplenty on the Kelvin. I knew there was big trout here – I had seen them in the past and a recent conversation with someone had made me decide to try this [...]
I got to the Kelvin around 5pm. I thought the rain we had would have freshened the river up a bit. I had noticed on the SEPA site it had risen a few inches. It was the colour of mud…perfect I thought; I love it like this…

Well that was a turn up for the books. I decided to spend a few hours down at the Kelvin before I jet off on my holidays tomorrow. I was expecting things to be hard going however the fishing was pretty good – even better than the last time I was down. It was busy [...]
Arrived at the river around 1130 – the day is windy with a few clouds in the sky – when the wind dies down it is warm. The Kelvin has a nice green tinge and is low; there has been no rain for a few days. I wangled a trout using the duo, the trout [...]
Not to sure where it all went wrong today – good temps (above 10), the water at a nice height and some olives floating around. Mike, Alex and I fished a city stretch and Mike was the only one who contacted a fish.
The water was looking brown rather than the classic green Kelvin [...]
