Conditions for evening trout fishing have been exceptional over the past few weeks.
With the warm evening conditions trout were beginning to feed on late hatches of olives and the odd yellow sally drifting downstream anytime from 9pm. Interspersed in these olives were the first of the sedges which have built over the weeks as the evenings extended and have now become the main fodder for trout with ample big browns in 2-3lb homing into them with confidence.
A single CDC bubble sedge in a size 14 has served me well alongside a size 14 CDC and Elk. I’m pleased to say that the sedge hatches haven’t hit their peak yet and the trout are still get into top gear so I’m looking forward to some further action over the coming weeks.
As weather conditions are set to change in the next few weeks daytime hatches should become more likely offering up further fishing and a welcome rise in water forecast for next week should help freshen things up and perhaps bring a silver tourist or two onto the beat.
