At last; some grayling fishing!

Reported water level at Øra (river Rena), today 247,27. This is 1,01m higher than normal, I wish for 0,5m lower !
Still, it was possible to fish with nymphs. A couple of good grayling landed. Saw some rises and size 14 tan caddis in action. Grayling landed on heavy nymph; The Killer Bug (Frank Sawyer). Both I and some German fishermen, fished up-stream nymph, "Wolfgang Fabisch style" and they also landed some very good grayling.
I measured 11 degrees in water; warm and sunny day.
