    What a difference a few days can make. This week starting off with the weather and water temperature cooling down a wee bit after the previous weeks mini heatwave, even a couple of frosts with the windscreen needing a scrape. The mornings/days certainly have a more autumnal feel to them with a few skene's of Geese seen heading south also. The water height started off at 10 inches and gradually fell away and the water temperatures dropped below 60f to 53f as the week went on. The weeks catch was a 4lb grilse for Nick Williams from Wittocks on a small Willie Gunn & Chris Johnston with a 5lb grilse from Upper Ferroch and a 2lb sea trout, both on a Sunray  

    If we actually get what the forecast is predicting we should get a much needed lift in water levels with heavy rain tomorrow into Tuesday then turning more unsettled as the week goes on.

    We have limited availability on the Cairnton bank over the last few weeks of the season but we have a few more options on Middle Blackhall, so if you were thinking of having a last throw of the 2023 season better get in contact with Sarah soon to get booked in. 

    Cheers Brian
