River Wharfe blown out!


And here I was all fired up about to have a busy week guiding on the grayling on the Wharfe and the rain gods have decided to ruin my plans! Thankfully tomorrow starts with a session on a stillwater, but it doesn't look good for the rest of the week. Always amazes me that the trout and grayling can avoid being washed out to sea when the river gets like this. Any stocked trout will now be down the river at Ilkley by now as they struggle to hold station in torrents like this! But the wild fish will tuck themselves under the banks and wait for the levels to drop.
