Last week’s forecast was fairly accurate, the coming week will be mainly warm and dry, although Wednesday 1st June will probably be the most overcast of the week. Monday will be the warmest, approaching 20c in sheltered spots, definitely a day for taking the afternoon off and fishing late. Just as the ink figuratively dries the air is rent with thunder and lightning and heavy, heavy rain, and I’m out with the dogs in my jumper. If this keeps up I can foresee a rise in the river levels! The tides start to build again from Tuesday evening.
Catches: The week started slowly but finished strongly.
Gordon Castle were close to thirty.
Delfur were over thirty, Mark said all fish were in top fighting form, most between 12 – 14lbs the largest around 18lb. Thanks to Mark and Rory for the photographs
Rothes had eighteen, Mike Ewan said the quality of the fish was great, mid teens and covered in sea-lice.
Craigellachie were again into double figures.
Kinermony reached double figures as well the best estimated at 22lbs. Many thanks to Davy Brand for the picture.
Wester Elchies just failed to get into double figures. Carron were the same, Richard Meigh had this fine specimen on Monday evening from Delmunach.
Then again as usual I hear very little till Grantown, Grantown had a good week with over thirteen salmon landed the best around 16lbs. The seatrout fishing is also gathering pace with a few landed, some around the 6lb mark.
Kinchurdy continue to catch both salmon and seatrout. Many thanks to Bobby Hall for his regular supply of pictures.
