    Another very good week for us at Cairnton & Middle Blackhall with 1 Salmon and 15 Grilse being landed on a fair variety of flies from Sunrays to small Cascades, Stoat Tails to 1/4" Hitched tubes. Juan Santamaria caught the largest fish of the week, a 10ld fish from the Cottage Stream on a hitches tube. The fish that were landed were fairly well scattered throughout the beat from both the Cairnton bank and the Middle Blackhall bank. Most of the fish were very fresh and a few were slightly coloured, as well as some residents starting to lie around in the pools. The water height on the Cairnton gauge started off at 0" on Monday and remained fairly steady apart from a small rise of a few inches on Thursday which was strangely our quietest day and finishing up at 1" on the gauge on Saturday evening. There is a slight rise of a few inches coming through today which should keep it freshened up.

    The forecast is for some showers tonight and tomorrow then air temperatures cooling as the week goes on.

    We have a few rods available over the next few weeks with prices currently ranging from £66 to £74.40 per rod. All availability can be viewed on the availability page on our website. Call or email Sarah to book 7 days a week.

    Cheers Brian
