Just like the previous month, August in Eden started with rain. Our rivers were starting to drop on the 1st, but overnight rain meant that all were rising on the 2nd. We lost the 2nd of August due to high waters. All were fishable again by the 3rd and after a week of coloured, but fishable water, it was a return to the sunny and hot weather that we've seen too much of this season. Great for holidaymakers but not for fishermen!
The fresh water seemed to perk a few fish up in those early days of August and a few nice fish were found.
