Prospects & General Comments:
Lower and middle Eden report for August 2020.
1st, water level at ten inches and clearing nicely. A ten pound salmon from Warwick Hall today, an eight pound fish from Low House, Jonathan Croft a six pound grilse downstream of Carlisle and a few more caught from around the Carlisle area. There are still fish coming in off the tides, both grilse and salmon.
2nd, water level five inches, two grilse from Warwick Hall and a couple from around Carlisle.
3rd, water level four inches and clear, not many fish reported today, a couple of salmon from the Carlisle area and a ten pound fish from Warwick Hall. Rain overnight.
4th, a wet and south-westerly breezy day, water level holding steady at present, more rain tonight forecast with strong winds. An eight pound salmon and one lost for Phil Holland today on the lower river and one from Warwick Hall. Trout fishing okay with nymphs most places and good at night for sea trout with the clear water. The river needs a lift of water for the middle beats to fish for salmon now which may come tonight, a lot of fish in the lower sections.
5th, the water level has risen to one foot six on the lower river today but remarkably still quite clear after heavy rain. A lot of fish movement all day. Upstream the gauges are all showing big and rapid rises of water which are now falling, so maybe that is all yet to come down river, we will see.
6th, lower river water level was over four feet overnight, it is now at two foot six with colour but now dropping, middle river dropping also and should fish well tomorrow. A fifteen pound salmon from Warwick Hall this afternoon.
7th, a few grilse size fish caught, river at one foot six inches with peat.
8th, water level ten inches and clearing . good fish movement today.
9th, water level four inches and clear, east wind, bright skies, a few fish showing, did hear of three caught today around the Carlisle area up to fourteen pounds, Dave Viehoff had a ten pound salmon from the middle river, a slow day for such a good water on the lower river.
10th, water level on the lower river is six inches and clear, the middle river is at summer low. The water temperature is getting a bit near to the limit where fish begin to go off the take, now at 19oC. Saying that there have been four fish reported today, three salmon from Warwick Hall at twenty, eight and ten pounds. There are still fish coming in off the tides every day. Thunderstorms due throughout the week.
11th, after localised overnight rain, the river is rising steady but still clear, good conditions.
12th, lower river water level is now at eleven inches and clear, the water temperature is 20oC. Very bright, very warm (28.5oC), fish showing but not too much interest in the middle of the day.
13th, water level eight inches and clear, bright and sunny day with strong east wind, a couple of fish reported around the Carlisle area.
14th. water level six inches and clear with east wind, good fish movements today on the lower river.
15th, water level four inches and clear on the lower river, very low water on the middle beats now, only three fish reported today. Trout fishing very good early and late when the sun is off the water.
16th, water level three inches and clear, a lot of fish on the lower river getting frustrated, rain due.
17th, a fair bit of rain overnight and this morning, a very slight lift of an inch or two, still clear. Water temperature had dropped though the night to 17oC with the little influx of fresh water. A couple of fish reported, but the river not showing the potential if the salmon were in a taking mood.
19th, water level 10 inches after overnight rain but clear, water temperature 17.5oC, fish showing on a regular basis on the lower river. Three fish from Warwick hall today, 12, 15 and 16 pounds, a couple more from around the Carlisle area. Brown trout and sea trout fishing a little on the slow side recently. Big tides over the next few days.
20th, a slight rise in water level today, a twelve pound fish from Warwick Hall and a couple around the Carlisle area, Kevin Edwards and Peter Robinson with a fish each from the lower beats. Good fish movement, with salmon and sea trout coming in off the tides which are increasing in height.
21st, strong southerly winds with heavy rain, water level one foot, river is rising upstream. One salmon reported from Warwick Hall at seven pounds.
22nd, water level two foot six with heavy colour.
23rd, water level three foot on the lower river and rising slowly. One fish of fifteen pounds from Warwick Hall today above the river Irthing. A wet week on the way which may scupper things.
24th, big and coloured water, heavy rain forecast tonight and Tuesday, one fish reported upper middle river today twelve pounds, not great prospects for this week with the weather forecast.
25th, similar conditions as yesterday, storm Francis going through,
Big and coloured water until the 30th, two fish reported around the Carlisle area, river now dropping and clearing.
31st, a twelve pound fish for Alan Sephton from the middle river, lower river now coming into good ply.
