Week Commencing 25th July 2016

Before I start this week’s report I have been told there is a new feature on the Website where you can register to receive an email to be informed when the latest report is published.

Last week’s forecast was reasonably accurate there was rain and sunshine most days. Next week, surprise, surprise is pretty much the same. Tuesday into Wednesday might be the wettest spell of the week with close to an inch forecast. If this comes to pass the river will certainly rise, we will just have to wait and see. The tides are building all week and hopefully the runs of fish will continue.

Catches, the bottom of the river is beginning to fish better than the top, no surprises there.

Gordon Castle finished the week around ninety. Thanks to some of my regular suppliers for their photographs.

Rothes ended close to thirty, Mike tells me they were predominately salmon. He also mentioned there are plenty of residents.

Craigellachie continued their excellent season and with two months to go have already passed the 5 year average and another reasonable week will see them pass 2011’s total.

Kinermony finished with eight, Davy Brand tells me it was a mixture of old and new fish. Thanks to Davy for his pictures.
