Week Commencing 20th August 2018.

There is a little rain forecast for today and tomorrow, but again just not enough. Everywhere else in the country seems to be getting more than the Speyside desert. The tides have peaked and there will be no new water this week.

Henry Spence was at Carron and Laggan, I can always rely on Henry for some pictures, this year it was more about fun than fish.

Henry says “The youngsters were fascinated watching the Fishery board team electro fishing. He went on to say in was very informative and would recommend it to anyone interested in the health of the river.”

 Jimmy Mitchel tells me

Anyhow, despite the continuing arid conditions, a handful of keen anglers have enjoyed our waters and have continued to land some fish. Andrew Davie landed the heaviest fish of our season, so far. He caught the 21 pounder from Tarric Mor, on fly. (picture attached.)

Marc Hewitt also sends a picture of his 10 pound fish from Bridge Pool.

Sea-trout continue to be landed with a specimen fish of 9.5 pounds and other of up to 5 pounds, reported recently.

Marc Hewitt 10lbs Bridge Pool Grantown.

Andrew Davie 21lbs Tarric Mor Grantown.
