River Tweed River Report Week Ending 24th June
Coming off the back of the best week's catch of the season so far, hopes were high for a reasonable week. However, the return of the sunny, windy weather, combined with the lower river levels didn't help, but despite this fish were caught throughout the river. This season seems to be quite sporadic from week to week.
Mathie at Ladykirk reoorts that the fish that had settled with them in the low water moved on out of the beat. This was to be expected, but it would seem that with the current temperatures fish seem loathed to come in off the tide at present. A visiting anglers took a clean fish on Thursday, and another fish was taken during the week and a seatrout. Cooler conditions will suit, but the rain forecast might hamper the fishing, we will have to wait and see what we get.
Birgham Dub had the best fishing of the week landing 21 Salmon and 4 Sea Trout, the floors beats managed 13 while on the Mertoun beats 8 were landed. Middle Pavilion landed 3 for the week, inc a nice fish for Mr Graham Thomas from the Whirls. West Learmouth and Milne Graden picked away throughout the week.
Makerstoun Head Boatman Mr Colin Pringle reports “Only the 1 for the week, seem to have lost my fish to Rutherford”
Hendersyde Head Boatman Ketch reports "7 for the week, mostly fresh with the biggest fish being 13lbs. Lots of other offers during a week of tricky conditions with bright days and strong winds. Small flies are doing the business for some good summer sport"
The week ended with the level at Sprouston 3" and the water temperature is 63.
Looking at the availability for the upcoming week I would suggest Middle Pavilion, Lennel, Ladykirk and Tweedhill beats should have a good chance of some action this coming week.
The forecast this coming week looks like we could be in for some proper wet weather. Given recent catches on the back of these lifts this could help with the catches.
