Last weeks forecast was mainly correct, there were couple of showers but nothing to get excited about. The river has dropped back to around summer level. Next week we return to the mixed forecast, there will be some rain on Monday, and Tuesday morning then Wednesday will be sunnier. With perhaps a little more rain before the weekend. The tides are building again all week.
Ian Tennant tells me they finished the week at Gordon Castle with around thirty fish landed.
I hear Orton had a better week than of late finishing in the twenties.
Delfur were again into double figures, thanks to Mark and Grant for the pictures.
I believe Rothes finished just short of double figures.
The middle river had a new lease of life, Wester Elchies had seven Sam tells me this was the best week since June.
Kinermony landed a monster from the Boat Pool, it was measured at 41” it would have been a lovely fish to land in June!
Both Carron and Laggan were close to double figures, the Tullis party had eight the best pictured below.
Laggan should have had at least a dozen but Friday was a day of missed opportunities with four lost. Grant Morrison on a busman’s holiday had this fine clean sea trout one evening.
Grantown again was quiet but a few fish were landed the best a 15lb fish from Lower Bend.
Kinchurdy continue to fish well. Don Griffin and Brian Taylor had 3 days, Don said, great few days a few fish and Bobby made our trip one of the best.
Kevin Shanks sent me a photograph as well and says, I am just back from another great week at Kinchurdy, I managed seven sea trout to 5lbs and a 10lb salmon. As usual a great beat to fish and great help from Gillie Bobby Hall.
