Streams of north

This friday we've finally got to check the Jordan river stocks.
At the place we were supposed to wade, the water was too high and I even got a little water flown over in my waders.
We've seen no signs of fish at all this time.
It was strange, as usually it is the best season for our barbel this time of year.
Tho days later we went to check out some smaller stream in the north. It is heavilly used for irrigation and so the water is pretty low untill 9.00 am,and the flow is mild.
Lots of smalscale barbel taking zak nymph at the shallow places.

I have seen some biger ones at deeper places, but none of us did not manage to get hold of one untill the water had risen. And then it was just cut, not a single bite at all.

The weather acting strange this year, we had some rains in september which is very unusual, and the water is pretty high in the rivers. Maybe October will bring some bigger barbel.
