(Last updated: Thursday 12th February)
February 11th on the River Findhorn saw the opening day of the salmon fishing season arrive. It was a glorious February day, with plenty of sunshine and river levels were in excellent order running at 2'2” on
the Forres gauge. Most of the lower beats on Altyre and Darnaway had fishing tenants present and all delighted to be out on the water again in such pleasant conditions. It is still early for the Findhorn and I
haven't heard of any fresh fish being caught, thus far. However, there are usually one or two early Spring salmon caught during the month of February and I shall certainly report any news of fresh fish being
caught in due course.
