Just heard again from Tweed regular, Andy Britton, who was fishing a non-reporting lower river beat recently that he had caught reasonable numbers of good fresh fish below Coldstream bridge. Generally, we would be expecting to see considerably more fish in the river at this time of year however, we still await a proper lift in the water levels to clean the river out and make a notable difference. The few inches it rose at the weekend may help a little but frankly, will not have any impact on the fishing. We are forecast heavier rian later this week but obviously, it needs to be in the head waters and not in the local vicinity. Having said that, it needs to be of a considerable quantity. At the moment, rain seems to avoid our catchment areas despite forecasts saying otherwise. Fishers are however, giving it their best shot and fish are being caught but generally in the lower river. As they say; "if you don't wet your line, you won't catch fish!".
If anyone wants to report their catches this week, please feel free to let us know by emailing email@example.com , tel 01573 225306 or pop into our new shop in Kelso - 13 Bridge Street - for a chat or if you have time a cup of tea/coffee! Wishing everyone a great week on the river and tight lines from Tim and the Tweedside Tackle team for another week!
