    This was a productive week with 6 salmon & 3 sea trout & the same again lost. 

    On Monday I met some good friends David Waters & Graham Nichols, alongside Charlie Alford on the Cairnton bank. 

    On Monday Charlie caught a fresh sea trout from the Middle Ferroch using a floating with a 5ips tip.

    I also caught a 3lb Sea trout fishing into darkness using a floating line with a dressed Lady Caroline single in the Middle Ferroch. 

    On Tuesday Grahame caught a cracking 9lb  salmon on a dirty cascade from the Middle Ferroch. 

    On Wednesday Charlie hooked a fish in the long pool but unfortunately the fished wrapped it self around the rock and broke him. 

    David caught a 2lb sea trout from the tail of the Malt steep using a sunray on an intermediate tip. 

    Thursday morning, the water temperature dropped down to 48f. We fished with heavier sink tips. Grahame got off the mark with a beautiful 14lb salmon from Lower Ferroch, using a 7ips tip & and a half inch aluminium monkey. 

    I was in the action too with a 12lb salmon from the garden run, fishing a 18ips tip with a Willie Gunn. 

    Late afternoon I sent David up to fish Middle Ferroch with a 10ips tip &  8cm samurai Ally shrimp. I noticed the water was starting to rise. It didn’t take David long before I received a phone call asking for help. On arriving from the bottom of the beat I noticed the fish had lots of power. About 10min later I netted a beautiful fish that weighed 19lb.

    On Saturday David started in Middle Ferroch.  He hooked a 9lb salmon in Lower Ferroch. He made this way down the Grey Mare where he caught his second fish around the 12lb mark. Using a 7ft 10ips tip with a sunray. 

    The water is dropping off nicely so next week is also looking promising.

    This was a productive week with 5 salmon & 1 sea trout. 

    On Monday I met George kuczera, David & Stuart on the Cairnton bank. 

    Stuart Norris caught a fresh 15lb salmon in the lower Ferroch using a hover with a willie Gunn. In the evening George caught a 14lb salmon in the Middle Ferroch using a floating line with a fast sink tip.  

    On Wednesday Middle Blackhall wasn’t let so  I gave George and his team the opportunity to fish the other side as the water suited the other side. 

    Stuart jumped at the opportunity after lunch. It didn’t take Stuart long before he was in the action in Malt steep with a 14lb salmon caught on a Junction shrimp.  George fished the Malt steep and in the evening he was awarded with a salmon around the 14lb mark. 

    On Thursday I met Mr R  Barnes & his friend at Cairnton, this was the teams 1st trip to Deeside.  Andrew was rewarded with a beautiful salmon from Lower Ferroch using a float line with fast sink tip and a monkey. He also caught a 2lb sea trout on the same method on Saturday afternoon. 

    The river is dropping so I hope this settled water brings in fish from the beats below.

    This was a challenging week due to the rise in water most of the week.  But we managed 2 salmon & 3 sea trout. 

    Monday morning the river was over 3’6” on the beats gauge & carrying a lot of colour. I had new clients on the beat, Mr J Craven-Smith & his family over at Middle Blackhall.  I met James & his son Henry at the hut we walked the beat & spoke about lines,flys ect. We got started in the malt steep. We fished it well but sadly no offers. 

    Tuesday the river had dropped over night and was reading 2’9 on the gauge.

    Henry started in the malt steep with a floating line with an extra superfast sink tip with a copper tube monkey. He landed a 3 lb sea trout on his 1st run down the pool. In the afternoon Henry struck lucky with a 12lb salmon from the tail of the pool. The salmon had been in the river for a week or two. 

    On Wednesday Mr J .C smith caught a fresh sea trout from the Kelpie using a copper Willie Gunn, on his last run down the pool before heading home. 

    Thursday I had Micheal McCanenay and two friend over at blackhall. 

    Sadly Micheal lost a salmon in the Malt Steep. He was using a willie Gunn on Fast sink tip. 

    Friday night Bob lost a cracking salmon at the net again in the malt steep. 

    On Saturday the river started rising which killed it. 

    On the Cairnton bank My fishers were Mr C Auld who again were 1st visitors to the beat. Sadly the height of the river favoured Blackhall But we stuck at it we seen a few fish heading and tailing. 

    On Wednesday Neil Maclead landed a fresh sea trout from the Middle Ferroch using a size 8 yellow Ally shrimp on a fast sink tip. 

    Friday afternoon Torbjorn Anderson from Sweden fished at Cairnton and caught a fresh 10lb salmon from the Malt steep using a sink 2/3 with one of my favourites, a 7cm Orange Samurai. Tobjorn fished the beat very well he wasn’t frightened to use different tactics. 

    I hope river levels, drop over the weekend so we can fish the beat properly.

    This was a disappointing week with only 2 salmon and 3 sea trout, for both banks. 

    At the start of the week the river was reading 9 inches on the cairnton gauge.

    On Monday night I caught a cracking 2 lb sea trout in the long pool, using a 1’ copper willie gun. 

    Due to the heavy rain the river started rising on Tuesday. It was carrying a lot of colour & started dropping on Wednesday. It looked promising for the tail end of the week. On Thursday I invited Andy and Grahame to fish at Middle Blackhall. 

    Grahame was rewarded with a 7lb sea lice salmon from the Malt steep using a size 8 Casade, Andy was also on the scoresheet with a 2lb sea trout, using a willie gun tube. 

    On the Cairnton bank I had James Madden & Mike Richardson who fished the full week on the north bank. 

    Sadly Mike Richardson hooked and lost a fish in Grey mare on the Saturday morning. 

    James caught a fresh sea trout around 2lb in Invercannie using a slow sink tip with a black & blue shrimp. James was also rewarded with a 10lb salmon from the Grey Mare using the same set up. 

    Let’s hope the river settles over the weekend and pull’s in fish from the beats below. 

    Tight lines Terry
