The lockdown has been eased enough to allow travel from most parts of the U.K. and Europe, so I can start reporting again on the river, I will restrict my comments to the numbers of fish and putting up some pictures!
There might be a little rain at the start and the end of the week, but it is mainly overcast, with some sunny periods. The tides start building again from Tuesday. The river should continue to drop away, at least the blackness of last week is clearing.
Gordon Castle were in the mid-seventies.
Orton has had a last-minute cancelation and have some availability early next week with some restrictions, phone Catherine in the office for details.
Rothes, Mel Mcdonald sent me this photo of his first of the seson, when I was not reporting.
Easter Elchies. Good steady numbers all week, with a final total of 23 and the same number lost. Of the fish caught over 50% were grilse. The junior section of the party once again keeping up a strong batting average.
Aberlour, Kenny tells me Five salmon this week for various anglers.
Wester Elchies finished in the high teens.
Laggan, James Bleaney’s party had an excellent week with twenty three salmon and grilse and four sea trout. As usual there were plenty of high jinks, David Barker AKA Coco was so jealous of my head of hair, he hasn’t had hair since his teens!
I cannot understand how a fully electric car can be good for the environment when you require a tow truck to follow you to ensure you can get to your destination. Apparently the charging points in Aberlour were out of action!
Carron, Neil and Fiona continue to keep me supplied this pictures.
Dani Morey had an interesting day at Lower Pitcroy, wth numerous pulls before landing this one.
