Last week

(Last updated: Monday 13th August)

Gordon Castle finished with close to forty for the week, a mixture of grilse but with a smattering of salmon. Beat 5 had a 17lb fish on Saturday.

Delfur were again into double figures, including two "first fish"

Neil Boathwick fished my rod on a small beat below Craigellachie had three fish for his morning, I wonder why I bothered travelling two hundred miles north.

Grantown, Jimmy tells me,
Four salmon have been reported this week, three of which were landed by Andrew Davie. He was also blessed with a decent 7lbs sea-trout.

Aviemore and Abernethy Stuart Voce reports
Last week the rain arrived and the river rose slightly but again fell back. One grilse was caught together with eleven seatrout all at night. The worm fishing ban remains in force.

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.
