Committee members of the Devon Angling Association recorded water temperatures at or about 19C on the River Devon today. Accordingly we have suspended fishing on the Devon until water temperatures return to a level which guarantees the welfare of returned fish.

No doubt there will be mumping and moaning, but very much the right decision

They'll be down deep in the lochs I expect !  Goodness knows how the rivers down south will get on.
 
In Fife water abstraction from the Eden for the potatoes has been halted. We were in St Andrews yesterday and the east Fife fields are full of combines working hard. The grain crops look very good indeed.

Even at loch enoch last week, the water was warm. That’s the highest loch in my area.
Probably why the fishing was poor.

A lot of beats on a lot or rivers suspended fishing for the week, earlier on this week.
However, the Fisheries Trusts on the big four are getting pelters today for carrying on e fishing yesterday.

have heard of a few people imposing their own limitations on fishing due to high temperatures.

That's where I stand Robbie. I have not fished a river since  June. To be honest the fish must be finding it hard enough without us adding to their stress.

I heard today that the Aberdeen Angling Association have suspended fishing on their beats due to low water levels and high water temperatures.

I can't however find anything about it online - anyone heard of this or similar elsewhere?

Been trying plenty new flies recently, due to coming home from the Netherlands with covid!. Lots to work on, particularly proportions and palmering, Although I was delighted to catch on my Griffiths gnat on the first cast.  8)
