Last week

(Last updated: Sunday 22nd April)

I am at last able to report catches from Grantown to the sea!
Gordon Castle finished the week with three fish, not their ideal conditions with high warm water, but maybe it just shows salmon don't read the books.
Delfur finished with four, Mark tells me the high dirty water made things difficult after a positive start on Monday.
Rothes had three the best a 12lb fish to party leader David Saunders. Simon Brook had two on Saturday.
Arndilly had eight for the week, quality and quantity, two at 17lb and another at 22.
Craigellachie had a fin clipped fish on Saturday; I hope everyone is still checking their catch before releasing them.
Wester Elchies had another good week with at least 6 landed.
Kinermony had a great start on Monday morning with 2 caught the first run down, but that was it for the week.
Carron I believe had three
Knockando had at least three but I have no more details.
Grantown after playing hard to get all season started with a wallop, landing at leas six for the week mainly from the Long Pool, though the best fell to John Davies from Pol a Ceanan.

If you have time it is worth reading the Environment, Climate Change and Land Reform Committee: report on the environmental impacts of salmon farming.
