Rain Rain Rain

well its been raining for quite some time now and the river is high and as I've said I've not been down at the river for q while and would love to know if their is any development on the salmon front ,has anyone seen any running and if so what sort of size are the fish ,i am waiting for the rain to cease and the river to start dropping to a fishing level so as i can wet a line which will probably start with me getting my worming rod out and giving the lower reaches a try for some fresh run salmon and sea trout which I'm pretty sure that with all this rain their will be some in the river .this year I'm hoping to get my hands on a nice sized sea trout as I've yet to get a sea trout over the 3lb mark and for me sea trout fight that bit harder than salmon and seem to have the vote on good looks too ,but give me a salmon any day and ill be happy .i have been missing the usual suspects to from the river that I've got to know over the years like Andy and Nicky who are die hard bait fishers that fish the lower stretch and theirs chubby and the other young team who are also into their fishing allot and its great to see Ian I've not seen yet this season accept a brief meeting in march and also Vinnie who is what i would calla well informed kelvin fisherman who seems to know everything their is to know about the river so if you know him he is a good source of information, their are many more guys i know on the river all their names I've not mentioned as their are too many but all good guys and all who love their fishing so hi to you all if your reading and you should be reading right "lol" look I've not really much else i can add just now as I've not been their or done that at the moment so ill say bye for now and wish everyone all the best on the river, oh i will be showing off some of my home tied flies soon so be nice as they might not be the greatest but one thing is for sure they catch fish and that's what matters...

well the river is very high just now and ive not been at the river so i cant really say but the kelvin does have a good run of seatrout most of them in the 1lb to2lb mark but i have seen much bigger and at night on the right stretch you certainly can hear some big ones out their in the dark keeps the blood zizzling and its bloody great though quite a risk as the kelvin isnt a great wading river, but to your original question ,yes their are always good numbers caught in the kelvin..
