Last week

(Last updated: Friday 10th November)

We are now into the last week of the Annan salmon season with the last day being next Wednesday. The river had a good rise in water earlier this which was much needed since the levels had steadily dropped off over the past week. With that rise in water came most of the fallen leaves which have thankfully passed through now. Last week saw more fish reported from the middle river, in particular Royal Four Towns, the angling effort there has recently increased but in general this season it has been very light throughout the Annan. The recent rain has given the river a good flush out and with much of the ground still saturated this rise in water should be enough to see the salmon fishing through to the end of the season.

With clear water and no significant rises in river levels over the past week or so, the grayling fishing on the Annan has been very good and over the last week the first frosts have arrived giving ideal Autumn conditions. Grayling anglers fishing Annandale Estates last week reported seeing good numbers of salmon showing on the middle beat with a couple of salmon hooked and lost on grayling bugs. There were also good numbers of grayling caught up to 2lb and a decent hatch of dark olives after lunch which brought the fish up to the surface in the Autumn sun.

Grayling fishing starts in earnest from the 16th with most beats offering grayling fishing, including on Sunday's. For more information on the Annan's grayling fishing check out the fishery description pages on Fishannan and always check the river levels before heading to the river.
