23rd July – 6th August

Tags : 

The first week of the family fortnight was blank but the river wasn’t fished much which was the best thing to do when the river is low. The last thing the salmon need is to be relentlessly harrassed in low water conditions.
The second week brought a small rise then went up to 3ft later in the week. 8 salmon and 4 sea trout were landed with several more were lost.Olly Ward was top rod with 3.

Week of the 19th June

We had low water all week at Braelangwell so the Sykes party did quite well with their total of 2 salmon 2 grilse and 2 sea trout.
Jaimie Corke got the party off the mark with a 3lb grilse from the Upper Washerwonan on Wednesday. On Thursday Liliana Sykes caught a 8lb salmon from the neck of Shepherds, by this time it was minus 14 on the gauge. On Saturday Mark Butler caught a grilse at the tail of Keepers then after dinner on the back of a slight rise Jonathan Sykes caught a salmon that was estimated to be around 25lb from just under the Morail falls which took him to the backing and ran down to the main body of the Morail.
The sea trout were caught after dinner with a lot of activity on the Monday night then it went quiet but the party did see a lot of them jumping the Morail falls on the Wednesday afternoon.

Update

At last we have water.
Yesterday 2 fish were caught on Braelangwell and quite a lot of fish were seen which was encouraging.
Today, we had 1’6″ on the gauge down from over 5′ overnight. The river only dropped 6 inches all day. Despite strong wind all day Mr Scott-Demster caught 3 salmon and lost 1 in the Morail, Lady Valerie Gilmour had 1 in the Morail, Mr Peter Crawford also had 1 in the Morail and lastly, Mr Colin Campbell caught 1 from the Rock pool.
6 salmon landed and 2 lost on such a wet and windy day is very commendable.

River report

Tags : 

We suffered from lowish water everyday bar Saturday when the river rose overnight Friday to about a foot. Unfortunately, by the morning it was back to 0 on the gauge.
Olly Alston caught the only fish off Braelangwell on Saturday afternoon, a 7lber from the Morail.
The party also had the Gledfield beat and a beat on Dounie where they caught 2 salmon.
Three salmon came off the Cornhill beat and we hear Amat had their first of the season. We suspected a fish would come from above the Morail as the water temp reached 48c for the first time this year enabling the fish to go over the Morail falls.
Although catches are slow quite a lot of fish were showing this week which is encouraging.
