Last week

(Last updated: Tuesday 3rd April)

Wintery conditions are still clinging on and fishing has been challenging with cold, strong winds. Water conditions were favourable on the lower river last week and Newbie anglers enjoyed some action with two fresh fish lost and a lovely 10lber landed by John Bamford on spinner. The trout fishing has yet to start with no meaningful hatches occurring due to cold water and air temperatures. Deep nymphing tactics would be the only way to tempt the trout at the minute. We would remind anglers to avoid catching grayling as they approach spawning season which usually occurs in May on the Annan.
