With staff busy conducting fieldwork between bouts of rain, we've only got an abridged report for you today. 

Unfortunately, the rain that blew any prospect of fishing to pieces last weekend is set to return on Saturday. 

There's a chance anglers in some parts of the country might find fishable water early on Saturday morning before the weather bomb arrives, but please check the live flows using the links provided below before heading out on the water.
