Last Saturday an 8lb salmon was caught by Jamie Hyslop on Linloskin beat (River Cree). Yesterday two springers were reported, a 9lb fish caught by J Haley on the Kirwaugh beat (lower Bladnoch) and a 10lb fish by Steve Morris from the Glentrool Estates water on the Minnoch.
It has been a slow start to the season. Up to the end of March the only spring salmon landed has been two caught on the Clugston Beat (Bladnoch). Kelt numbers are also low, presumably the high river flows through the winter have aided these fish to return to the sea. A 3lb sea trout was reported at the end of March from Dalbeattie AA.
The first salmon caught on the Cree was an 8lb springer from the Newton Stewart Angling Association beat on the 7th April.
