As the season winded down = the fishing permits ran out at the end of the year I was still hoping for a last chance to fish the stream. The unusually warm weather had been accompanied by boatloads of rain so the stream had not seen its average level since this month’s beginning and any chance to fish slowly faded away. With the end nearing I chanced it and went on a last trip despite the high water. Although the…

We had been quite lucky with the weather until now as real cold spells that usually killed off the fishing had been absent for the time being. As I had not been fishing much this year because of my surgery there was one fish species still on my to-do list namely chub. The chub were restricted to the lower reaches of the river I fished due to man-made barriers that had been in places for ages. These barriers were slowly…

Another weekend with picture perfect weather. The day started out rather chilly as the night was cloudless which caused a significant cooling. I tried one of my favorite spots near a removed weir were the rocks created an interesting current and a deeper pool. The water was still higher than usual, some of the familiar rocks where still partly submerged. With fall steadily progressing the shedding of leaves had gone into overdrive. Many of those leaves ended up in the…

The weather service predicted nice weather for Saturday and not so nice weather on Sunday, they were wrong … again. You actually could not ask for better weather, light winds … mild temperature and plenty of sunshine. It had rained in the night and the effect was a little more than I had hoped for. The water pushed through at a pretty pace and the current patterns at my favorite coarse fish hot spots where mixed up. I could not get to…

With the end of the trout season in sight my days on the trout section of the stream where numbered and the urge to go fishing was thus great. The problem I faced was that the last couple of days the rains had poured continuously. I watched the river gage daily as it went up nearly vertically = flooding. With two special permits left for the mill pool the Saturday fell into the water as the stream had its peak…

This Sunday would be the last day when we could enjoy the quiet sunny fall weather before a southwesterly flow would bring in unstable and wet weather from the Atlantic. The day started with high clouds, later in the day the wind would pick up if the weather prediction would be accurate. So I was off again to the mill pool were this time nobody was fishing, the word had got around that the pool had been emptied of trout. At…

Another weekend and another visit to the stream while the season lasted. The weather forecast was good, all requirements for a successful fishing day were met. Clouds covered the sun in the early morning so the temperature only rose slowly. At the mill pool the first anglers where already fishing. After getting in wading gear I first probed the pools of the stream as those fish would most likely be inclined to feed earlier than the ones at the mill….

Saturday was a good day and as the weather predictions for Sunday where even better than the day before I had high hopes for the fishing. As it was fall I wondered where the mushrooms had gone, I gave the search some more attention and spotted a few along the road. Again the weather was perfect, bright blue skies in the morning with that crisp fall feeling. The mill pool was again not void of anglers as I arrived. Just…

Another weekend and thus another visit to the stream. I was out and about in the morning and since it had been a clear and relatively cold night I was in no hurry to get to the water. The sunlight was just about to burn the fog away on this crisp fall morning. Off course I had to stop to see how the hornets where doing, the power of the sun was already strong enough to keep them flying on…

A day earlier I attended the annual gathering of our fishingclub at the mill pool. On that day I secured fishing permits for the mill pool for every upcoming weekend so the next day I was again on my way to Germany. In the local village they had yet another harvest celebration so my competition would probably be drunk in the village instead of fishing at the mill. On the way to the pool I noticed this birdhouse with what…
