Week Commencing 14th August 2017.

Last weeks forecast was incorrect as far as the heaviest rain fell at the start of the week, pushing up the river on Tuesday. The rise last night was quite small and is already dropping away. Next weeks forecast is back to changeable, there will be a little rain mid week, and some periods of sunshine. The tides are building till Thursday then there will no new water for a week.

 

Catches,

Gordon Castle had over seventy for the week from their beats. Ian Tennant tells me they were mainly older fish.

Rothes finished just shy of twenty. Mike tells me the majority were coloured.

The middle river was pretty quiet the rise in water brought a few fish on but not many. Aberlour Angling Club had five as did most of the beats round and about.

Grantown had a few more anglers out and not surprisingly a few more salmon were landed finishing the week with at least eight reported, the best 19lb from Tarric Mor.

Kinchurdy continue to catch both salmon and sea trout.

Pictured below is French guest with his first ever salmon of 6lb safely returned.
