I would like to thank Martin for all his weekly reports for the season, it is not an easy job and also thanks to all the ghillies/boatmen for helping him with the river report. It is important and the weekly report gets read by many people not only here in the Uk but also abroad. Martin will start again at the begining of the new season. Thanks.
Although there a couple of full weeks left until the end of the season, the river is slowly beginning to close. Fishing pressure
has been light for last week. Early November used to be a great time of the river. Heavy frosts at night and the water running a good height and lots of big silver fish.!!! How things have changed.
The levels started on the high side for the lower beats at the early part of the week but settled down nicely as the week went on. The river settled well and all looked very promising, but it would seem many fish moved on quickly upstream.
Middle Pavillion mentioned fish running hard Monday, and little followed in after they left.
Boleside was very quiet, with an odd fish moving, there were more goosanders than salmon seen on the beat!!!!
I popped down to West learmouth on Friday to find good water but it was rapidly on the rise and had risen 1/2 foot by lunchtime.
The river kept on rising well into Saturday and sadly for most a wash out.
If you fancy a nice day out and a cast then why not. Prices from £45 per day, Upper North Wark, with Sunderland hall and Fairnilee. Ladykirk if the levels drop to around 1 ft at Norham.
Fishing for 2019 enquiries are being taken and syndicates are available on Ladykirk, Horncliffe, and Fairnilee.
