Week Commencing 30th June 2014

Well the rain came but not as much as was forecast, and accordingly the river rose only by a few inches, a few feet might have been better.

The forecast for the coming week is for some more rain or drizzle with a fine sunny day on Thursday. Tides are building all week. I decided not to attend Silverstone this year, watching V6 Mercedes cars driving around trying to save fuel and tyres, with or without gearbox problems is not a Formula One race no matter what Bernie thinks.

Catches: The Gordon Castle Beats have picked up recently, and finished the week close to forty salmon. Thanks to Graham Ritchie and Willie Mair for sending me their photographs.

I understand Rothes were also around the twenty mark.

Upstream things were a little quieter, Craigellachie had about half a dozen, as did Wester Elchies. Carron had a couple with a couple of seatrout. Grantown were quiet on the salmon front but continued to catch plenty of seatrout reaching the mid twenties by the weekend. Jerry Galliennehad the best seatrout just under ten pounds the best salmon was a seventeen pounder from the Lurg on Friday.
