Rising Trout!

Spotted my first rising trout of the season yesterday – I was actually out at Calder Glen Country Park with the kids and went for a walk along the river. There were rising trout in just about every pool.

Of course, I assume this is kinda old news to you guys – forums and trout chat has been alive with talk of rising trout even before the season started. The mild winter and spring has bumped everything forward by a few weeks  resulting in increased insect activity and trout looking up in just about every river. I have been hearing some good things from the Kelvin with nice fat well conditioned trout being caught – in fact I am hoping to get in on some of that action today, I have a pass from family life for a few hours and am planning on hitting the mighty “K” to capture my first trout of the year.

Of course there is always the possibility I will catch bugger all – it happens!


  1. Go further up the River and you’ll see them jump clear out the water for the midges!;)

I really enjoy reading your comments - say something!
