Prospects

Prospects for coming week

(Last updated: Thursday 26th April)

As we are now well into April the old term "April Shower" is pretty much with us for now and into the next week. The weather patters are due to change over the weekend from the westerly pattern, to a Southerly patterns and then an Easterly next week. The river should remain settled and this will suit the lower beats, but with the possibility of heavy showers the river might get an odd lift that should keep
fish on the move and fish coming in from the bay.

High tides are due in the next few days.

Floating lines, with tips and a mix of flies, depending on the height. Tubes to 8 doubled. Ally shrimps to Posh Tosh.


For latest fishing availability on the river Findhorn please check the "Find Fishing" or " Fishery Descriptions" page, giving details of dates and beats on offer throughout the forthcoming season. As always, please take great care when wading especially during these early

Spring months, when water temperatures can be extremely cold. Waders full of cold snow melt water can ruin your day, so please do make sure to take a towel and a set of "falling in " clothes just in case! An inflatable life harness is also highly recommended at all times.
