There was a distinct change in the weather as we came into March, definitely colder, a good 10C cooler than the week before. Next week remains the same; temperatures around 6C, there might be a little rain mid week. It will be windy most of the week, back to the usual March conditions.
The tides have peaked and there will be no new water till next week.
Catches, a much poorer week than last week.
Delfur had a fish on Tuesday.
Arndilly also had one around the 18lb mark.
Kinermony Clive Murray had their only fish of the week.
Delagyle have had a few fish including a very large fish caught by Piper Allan Sinclair , but I have been given no more details.
Carron Gillie, Ian Borthwick got the season underway with a 8lb fish from Sands on Friday.
As I mentioned last week some of the gillies on the river are tagging salmon in a study to look at the fish recapture rates and distribution.
Grant Morrison sent me these pictures of a fish he tagged, please keep your eyes open for tagged fish.
