    Water levels last week were consistently high due to snow melt, sitting between 3 and 5.5ft all week which meant we only had a few pools fishable. We did manage to land 4 and loose a couple others however. Swedish angler Anders Helgesson got an 8lb fish in Malt Steep 1st thing on Monday on Middle Blackhall and we had another 8lb fish in Lower Ferroch on Cairnton. Regular Cairnton rod Iain Ogden caught the other 2 later in the week at 10lb and 7lb, both in the Grey Mare. 3 of the fish, as with a lot of others this year, were seal marked.

    Water levels last week were consistently high due to snow melt. We saw fish every day running through but it was Thursday before we landed 1. Yorkshire angler Bob Garnett got a 9lb fish in the Upper Ferroch on Cairnton with a Willie Gunn. Thursday was Bob's first ever day on Cairnton and he caught his fish within the first hour, so well done to him. Apart from a couple of kelts that was it for the week but with good water and overhead conditions next week it will hopefully be better.

    April started off well with 2 fish on Monday.  The first, a 7lb sealiced fish, took a gold Willie Gunn in The Cottage on Cairnton.  Swedish angler, Pontus Gunlycke got his 3 week trip to Deeside off to a good start with a 10lb fish in the Rockhead and followed it up with a 14lb fish in Invercannie on Tuesday.  Both fish fell to Monkeys on Middle Blackhall.  The rest of the week was strangely quiet with only a couple of fish lost and a few kelts to show for our efforts.  Water levels took a big jump yesterday due to snow melt, so prospects look good for next week. 


    We have rods available throughout the season on both banks so please check Fish Dee for our latest availability and contact Sarah to Book.

    Bank Report Sunday 1st April 2018

    The last week of March started quite promisingly on Monday with Grahame Reid getting a fresh 10lb fish in the Kelpie on Middle Blackhall bank plus we lost 2 fish on Cairnton bank. Over the next couple of days we lost another 2 fish and landed a couple of kelts before George Boyne landed another fresh 8lb fish in the Malt Steep on Cairnton bank. I also got on the scoresheet on Friday with a 13lb fish from the Middle Ferroch on Cairnton. Prospects for this week are good, with milder conditions forecast for the second half of the week which might give another rise in water.

    Regards

    Andy

    The last couple of weeks were very quiet on Cairnton and Middle Blackhall, as far as fresh fish were concerned. We caught and saw kelts most days but apart from a couple of fish lost that felt good, the springers proved elusive. All that changed yesterday however, after a change to milder conditions and a sustained rise in water levels we landed 3 fresh fish, of which 2 were sea liced. George Boyne got his season of to a flyer with 2 fish of 9lb & 6lb on an 1 1/2” Alistair. Grahame Reid also opened his account for the season with a cracking 14lber on an 1 1/2” Black and orange. With the water sitting at a good height and settled conditions we will hopefully get some more fish next week.

    What a great start to the season for Cairnton and Middle Blackhall. 2 great fish caught on opening day with lots of Kelts too over first 3 days. One fish was caught in Glisters by Mark Melville, the head ghillie from Delfur and was 15lb. Nick Armstead is holding the second fish (pictured) from the Grey Mare and was about 16lb. Hopefully many more to come in 2018.

    Great start to 2018

    So the last week of the season produced 7 fish which can not be sniffed at. One 10lber from the Lower Ferroch on Monday, one 5lber from the Grey Mare on Tuesday, one of 10lb from Lower Ferroch and one of 5lb from the Cottage on Wednesday. On Thursday the Middle Ferroch produced a 14lber and the Lower Ferroch a 4lber on Friday.  Yesterday saw the last fish of the season, a 12lber in the Cottage.

    It was a pleasure to see everyone who fished here this year and we hope to see you all again next year.

    The diary is open for the 2018 season so if you have not already contacted Sarah please email her as soon as possible with your dates so not to be disappointed.

    Cheers Brian

    A nice finish to 2017
