Hendersyde Head Boatman Ketch reports 5 Salmon and 8 Sea Trout for the week, none liced but mostly fresh. Not much sign of grilse yet but the Sea Trout are in fine form”
Lower Birgham Head Boatman Mr Tom Davis reports "Good bit of rain we've had today, hopefully more somewhere. Had a grilse this week."
On Upper North Wark, there wasn't much fishing effort this week with the strimmer being out. Mr Spencer Tolley did have a cast and came across and 8lber in the Snipe Pool.

Ladykirk Head Ghillie Mr Matthi Viethen reports "5lb grilse and 1 lost to day rods, was all for Monday and Tuesday in bright sunshine. Wednesday, syndicate rod got 11lb, and another syndicate rod got broken by
huge fresh fish estimated around 30lb!! Thursday's syndicate rod had 2 nice looking liced grilse, 5 and 6.5 lb. On Friday we didn't even manage a pull despite fresh fish in the pools and experienced rods out. On
Saturday we did connect with fish of 10lb and a 3lb sea trout for syndicate rod and liced 7lb to myself on Saturday."
Mr Douglas Aitken fishing at Rutherford, Cornhill & Ladykirk reports "We were on Ladykirk Wednesday saw very little the next two days they saw a lot of fish but could not catch them then again on Saturday morning saw very few but had a sea trout and salmon. Had three nice fish at Cornhill and lost two and landed one sea trout up at Rutherford in an hour before the rain got so heavy it was hard to see!"
On the tributaries, the main beats on the Till had a quieter-week with just 3 Sea Trout reported. Redscar & Upper Tindal 1 and Flodden with 2.
Mr David Cowan of Berwick and District Angling Association reports "River levels remained low all week on the Whiteadder and no fish were reported from BDAA beats however this rain over the past couple of days have given us a rise of 8 inches this morning. Monday could turn out be a good day."
The week ended with the level at Sprouston 3" and the water temperature is 62.
Looking at the availability for the upcoming week I would suggest Milne Graden, Ladykirk & Pedwell beats should have a good chance of some action this coming w
