What little rain that fell was soon absorbed by the ground and the river showed very little change in height. Next week’s forecast does have some rain, Monday evening looks promising and again on Thursday, but we will have to wait and see if it makes any significant improvement. The tides are building all week.
Gordon Castle beats finished in the low thirties, mostly grilse but Ian Tennant tells me there were a few salmon.
Delfur were again into double figures. Including four Delfur badges for people catching their “first” fish.
Arndilly, Ewan tells me they had twenty seven this week, a mixture of older salmon and fresh grilse. Five of the salmon were over 15lb
Carron though very lightly fished had three salmon and two sea trout, the best estimated at 8lbs.
I have few other reports
Grantown. Still very dry, only a grilse and a handful of sea trout landed.
Abernethy and Aviemore Stuart Voce tells me.
The river came up a few inches and fishers reported fish were taking but few were landed. The lucky ones reported 3 seatrout for the week , best 3lb.
The suspension of worm fishing remains and the signs are on the pools till further notice.
