Fishing Reports

FishPalLogoEach week the latest fishing reports are added to the FishPal website. Below are some of this week’s reports.

River Dee: We enjoyed another good week on the river. The water has fallen away and we are back down to summer levels; nonetheless we continued to fish well and with the prospect of another small spate in the offing this week (assuming the forecast is not just a tease) I am confident we will continue to see plenty action on Deesideread more.

River Spey: It has been quite a quiet week on the river, although most beats having been catching fish, hopefully it just a lull between the spring and summer runs. Ian Tennant tells me that the Gordon Castle beats finished in the mid teensread more.

River Tweed: 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 – read more.

River Tyne: The rise in water a fortnight ago now certainly brought fish into the system with catches spread up to Haltwhistle on the South Tyne and above Bellingham on the North Tyne. There were reports of good sport throughout the system with several anglers enjoying multiple catches. The water dropped off this week and so have catches but there are fish in the system  – read more. 

Ayrshire Rivers: On the River Ayr fish have been landed as far up as Muirkirk with a decent number of fish reported running the weirs at Stair and Catrine. Fish were landed throughout the system since the spate on the 6th of June with fish landed in the Annbank, Stair, Mauchline, Sorn and Muirkirk areas. On the Irvine fish have been landed as far up as Galston and Hurlford with both clubs landing a few each. We have also heard of fish landed further down the system and anglers are reporting a number of fish in the river, there have also been fish landed on the Annick water – read more.

River Nith: The recent lift in levels should have encouraged more fish to enter the river despite this there are no reports of salmon being caught on the beat , however a few guests at the hotel have been out with the trout rods and have had some good sport with the browns best around the 13 inch mark so nice fish. A good fish was also lost due to the hook snapping, this may have been a decent sea trout – read more.
