So I took a wee stoat up to the Vet School today as it looks like the last day fishing for a bit as the rain is about to come. I met a guy from SEPA who asked me if I had seen any dead fish. It just so happened that I had seen two but had not thought much about it. It turns out because the water is so low and it is so hot the amonia levels are rising in the river causing the trout to die. I seen a couple of rising trout but decided not to go after them as if I had caught them it would have taken them longer to recover……if at all.
I walked down the river coming across more and more dead fish.
Some looked nice as well.
I allso found a large plastic bag full of maggots next to a porno mag …
Kelvin fishers eh?? cant take those buggers anywhere!! tut tut!!
I have seen a remarkable amount of snails this year, seems I have not seen this many ……..well ever in fact now that I com eto think about it!
Here is one stuck to a nettle bush!
The rain started today. I only hope that it starts bucketing down and gives the fish plenty of oxygen!
