Last week

(Last updated: Sunday 18th March)

Catches. The highest beat to report a fresh fish is slowly creeping up the river, with both Carron and Laggan getting their first of the season late in the week. I am confident that Grantown will have there first of the season before Easter if not before the clocks change.

Orton got their season underway when Ms Dani Morey landed a fresh fish on Monday.
Monday also saw Delfur land a fish from Hollenbush, James Chalmers' favourite pool.
Surprisingly it was not till later in the week that Alex Falconer had a fish from Bluestone at Rothes.
Arndilly continued to catch fish; this week Graeme Alexander had a couple.
Macallan got their season underway when Jamie Ritchie had a fresh fish from the Tunnel.
Aberlour Angling Association had their first fish from Sandy Hole, a 7lb fish for James Christie.
Davey Brand had this small fish from the Boat Pool on Saturday.
I hear rumours that Delagyle had a fish as well but have no details.
I had a fish from Dalmunach on Friday.
On Saturday Jamie Di Sotto had a much bigger fish from the same pool for Laggan.

Season so far

As in all of Scotland a slow start to the season.

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