    At last the forecast was pretty accurate for last week and we did get the rain that was promised and we experienced a good rise of 3.5ft late on Monday. On Tuesday we had 1 grilse and 3 sea trout and also saw plenty others showing. Wednesday we got good flood which peaked at 6ft on the Malt Steep gauge and was the highest it has been this season, so the river has had a good clean out. On Thursday, regular visitor Owen Duff landed a fairly fresh 5lb grilse followed very quickly by a couple of older sea trout from the Malt Steep and there were enough showing to keep everyone interested. On Friday and Saturday although there were fish about they were really dour but John Kane managed to finish the week on a good note with a 10lb er from the Upper Ferroch on a Sunray at the last last gasp.

    Water temperatures this week varied from the mid 50’s down to 50 Fahrenheit after a few cooler nights.

    This coming week looks to be a fairly wet and windy one.

    A few rods left over this last 3 weeks of the season so if you fancy a last throw for 2023 get in contact with Sarah to book. 

    Cheers Brian
