12th October, another huge rise of water levels due to heavy rain which will end the season for most parts on the 14th. There have been some big fish caught this week before the rise of water, I did hear of one at 27lb from above Carlisle and a few in the mid-teens of pounds. The Autumn run really never came to much regarding fresh fish, the odd pod coming off the tide but not the runs of back-end fish the Eden used to enjoy.

April was slower than usual, cold winds and low water did not help matters although there were fish caught. Trout fishing was slow to get going.
May, a lot of fish about this month and some big ones to, low water prevailed for the most part and the bottom beats did very well as did the middle river. Trout fishing was excellent.
June was better for the beats above Carlisle with the weather conditions. Good numbers of sea trout entering.
July is grilse time, they came early last year, there will also be some very good salmon among them. The sea trout numbers should peak this month. A very wet July with constant floods hampering sport.
August is shaping up nicely for fish numbers running, both grilse and salmon, weather patterns unpredictable.
September, the first half of the month have been high levels of water due to poor weather making fishing difficult. Better conditions for the second half hopefully! Second half great conditions with some large fish being caught.
