It has been a more difficult week on Speyside, the river levels have been more unsettled and towards the end of the week the wind has been really strong. Hopefully the high tides of this week end will have encouraged a few more fish to creep into the river.
I hear on “Facebook” that there has been another fish from the Gordon Castle beats, a fourteen pounder from Lower Ewe on Beat 3. I hear through more old fashioned channels that Orton have had their first of the season. Delfur was quieter than last week, but James Milne had a lovely fish of fifteen pounds from Broom on Saturday. The Gordon group had a couple of fish from Rothes.
I still have heard of nothing fresh above Laggan.
