Last week

(Last updated: Monday 8th October)

Salmon fishing remains a real struggle and with only 5 weeks of the season remaining we need some meaningful rainfall to keep the river holding at higher levels. With small lifts forecast this week the lower river will be the best chance of a fish.
Thankfully we've experienced some good conditions for grayling fishing. They are feeding hard and it is well worth trying any of the main river beats. In lower water concentrate on beats from St. Mungo's. On mild, settled days be prepared to switch to dry fly tactics. There are hatches of small stonefly and pale watery bringing fish to the surface.
The brown/sea trout season ended on Saturday 6th October and we wish them well on their journey to the spawning grounds.
Details of our popular winter grayling events are now being released. More news to follow.
