Another predominately dry week, it is strange it has taken till almost the end of the season for us to have an almost settled fortnight. There is some rain forecast for tonight and tomorrow morning hopefully it will give the fish a bit of a shake up before the season ends. Tides, there will be no new water till Wednesday then the tides will begin to build again.
Catches: The Gordon Castle Beats slowed slightly this week, but let’s not get too excited they still caught close to fifty fish.
Delfur, Mark tells me that the fish are not keen on taking but hopefully the forecast freshet might persuade them to show a little more interest this coming week. Even so around 20 fish were landed including a couple of first fish. As usual Mark and Grant have generously sent me some pictures to brighten up my report.
Eric Wardle’s party had a good week at Rothes with everyone eventually landing something, the total was close to thirty. Eric had the biggest of the week from Creaky. Margaret Gregg was delighted to land her first Spey Salmon. Thanks to Robbie Stronach for the photographs.
It is nice to get some information and a few pictures from Arndilly. Many thanks to Charles Harman for sending me his pictures. I understand they finished the week with around twenty, including some fresh ones.
Craigellachie continued with about a fish a day.
Wester Elchies had eight taking the season total to around 240 well over twice last years total.
Carron finished with half a dozen.
Grantown had at least seventeen salmon landed, including two estimated at 16lbs. I am grateful to Jimmy Mitchel for this picture of Cosimo Imperiale and his fish from from Tarric Mor.
