River has risen around 4 inches overnight.
Might just be enough to encourage an odd seatrout to venture upriver.

Apologies for the 'out of the water' photos.
On this particular stretch of the Ythan,due to the nature of the banks, it's near impossible to get them unhooked while still in the water.

After heavy overnight rain i arrived at the river expecting a rise of several inches.However,i was disappointed to find that the rise in water was barely an inch.
I decided to have a go and at least i would get some fresh air.
Very surprisingly,i managed to hook and land a decent sized seatrout.

Just goes to show that any rise in water at this time of year might bring something up river.

Watched Countryfile a way back and they were talking about the number of seals in the estuary. The shore was black with them. It is a miracle that any fish including finnock can get past them. Saying that they had multiplied 10 fold over the last few years.

Had some fun and games trying to land this sea trout last night.
It was absolutely pitch black and from hooking to netting the fish,i could hardly see a thing.
I just stuck my net where i guessed the fish might be and luckily it swam right in!
