Week Commencing 11th September 2017

Last week’s forecast was accurate, the rain was possibly heavier than anticipated and the river reached close to six feet by the weekend. I’m not sure whether the high water will re-arrange some of the gravel deposited in June’s spate. Next week there is a little rain forecast most days, although Tuesday will probably be the best day of the week. The tides are building again all week.

And the rain came down!


The high water obviously suits some beats more than others.

Gordon Castle finished with close to twenty salmon landed.

Orton was lightly fished but the gillies were able to have a go.






Delfur were around the double figure mark again, thanks to Mark for the photograph.

Rothes had an excellent week with Eric Wardle’s party landing twenty, including a day with over six landed. There is still some rods available next week I see.

Arndilly were close to double figures as well. Thanks to Charles Harman for the update and pictures.

Grantown had one of the best week’s of the season with more than thirty-four reported. There were also over fifty sea trout landed. Several of the salmon were in the high teens. James Chambers pictured with an 18lb from the Long Pool.

Kinchurdy also had a good week. With around twenty salmon landed and a handful of seatrout. Thanks to Bobby Hall for organising the photographs for me.
