Friars Carse Beat
Regular angler to the beat Pete Behan had 3 salmon at the end of September and early October from Policemans and Riding stone, A Dann had brown trout to a 1lb whilst fishing the Island Forrest and House Pool. L Wolstencroft had 4 grayling and 3 brownies in Marsdens & Policemans & Tony McCaffery had grayling to 2lb from Marsdens.
Late October regular anglers on the beat Steve & Ian had some good sport on the same day, Steve had a salmon of just under 13lbs a 6lb grilse followed by a 3lb sea trout, his pal Ian had a salmon of just under 14lbs. - really good to see reports of fish from the beat.
Given the way the river has been the last few weeks I think we’re all praying for some settled river height for the last few weeks of the season, there should be fish in the system now let us hope they just haven’t bolted straight through.
Up on the beat myself next week running the last course of the 2022 season so hoping for some good water and a bit of luck for clients, it would be nice for them to hook into one of the famous Nith ‘greybacks’.
The beat has a good mixture of pools to suit all so why not book yourself a day before the end of the season through FishPal.
