Rapport 29-06-2020

A small video clip showing the conditions on June 29, 2020. The water level is unusually high for late June. There is still a lot of snow in the mountains that is still melting. Although the water level is about 1.5 to 2 m higher than normally at the end of June / July, Mayflies such as Sulfurea, Aurivilli, small Baetis and also some buzzers are hatching.


The caddis flies are still holding back a bit, but single specimens of larger species can already be observed. Yellow stone flies also occur. When there is no wind, the video shows where the fish are rising. Like every year just before the huge mayfly hatches start, the seagulls have come up from the coast to chase the Mayflies.

As it looks now, nature has been waiting for travel restrictions for COVID-19 to end on July 15th. Perfect. Such a good water level gives good hope that there will also be a an amazing season in August.
