Conditions Fish Caught in the Past Week Fish Caught this Season so far River Height:
This’s was a week of two halves.
At the start of the week the river was at a lovely height on the cairnton gauge. 2’8” & carrying some colour and dropping.
I was disappointed we only managed a few kelts for the first part of the week.
The later part of the week wasn’t let. So I managed too fish myself. Thursday morning the weather turned nasty with a frost in the morning, and an upstream wind that proved challenging with no reward .
Friday morning the river was in good condition 2’2” with a little Colour from the mid week rise.
The water temperature dropped to 37°f. I started to fish at Middle Ferroch, fished it down to the lower Ferroch but no offers.
Malt steep at Middle Blackhall was at the perfect height. I fished the pool with with a floating line with a extra super fast tip and an inch and a quarter Brass willie gunn. As i reached the tail end of the pool i struck lucky with a 8lb fresh Spring salmon.
On Saturday Morning Andy Ashcroft fished the beat. After a cup of tea I sent Andy over to start in Malt steep he was rewarded with a cracking fresh 8lb spring salmon. Using a floating line with a 6ips tip and his favourite willie gunn. Well done to that man.
Here’s hoping next week we get off to a good start.
