Sea trout get down to it!

Duncan Ferguson set me this picture of a pair of sea trout spotted spawning in a burn above Carrbridge this morning. This is the first report of spawning sea trout this year; the same day as the first snowfall in the middle reaches of the Spey.

Can you spot the fish? The hen had created another redd just upstream and out of shot of the photo.

Can you spot the fish?

Not the best photo so contributions towards a collection for a new camera for our operations manager are welcome, mind you it wasn’t the best morning for photography!

This photo shows one of two redds in the area. You need to know what you are looking for to identify little spot redds like these.
