Pretty dire reading in the Brown Trout catch returns for Association waters, 3 fish for the last week  eek :

Sure, the conditions have been far from favourable and effort may be low, but it is a 'jungle' out there just now (unless you are Liam !)... here's hoping for a dry May.

Walked down to the Don at lunchtime. Still quite high but still a bit chocolatey too. Could see maybe 2" at the most. Difficult to tell if it's clearing or getting dirtier.

I think if this continues it will be beyond Friday and right through the weekend......again  a little bit angry Well up at Kintore on the Webcam  oh well

The Salmon spinners will be happy if it starts dropping. Monday past conditions were still very poor and it was the first day out this season that I didn't see a rising fish even though the water had dropped two feet sice Sat evening and was starting to clear. Few flies coming off too but not many.

I think April has had its chips as they say certainly as far as weekend fishing is concerned.

Time to order a new spinning reel I think, mines bust and dont think a fly will be much use for a while.

Was out today, water is high but running clear. Got two kelts on the fly and lost a cracking springer at the bank. Plenty of dries coming off but no browns to be seen.

Hi Liam,

Was out last night for a few hours with the Salmon rod, upper parkhill was well up and pretty dirty.
Looking at the river levels today and how the weather has been i might try further up river in a day or two for salmon again.

Guessing you haven't been out for a while?

Dan,

Damn  a little bit angry no I haven't been for 2 weeks now, seems like forever  sad how much longer do you think I'll have to wait before trying for the Brownies?  Huh?

Might try the Urie for a few hours tomorrow. Depending in what Fishpal is saying.

Cheers
Liam

Your asking the wrong person for conditions for Brownies, so far this season i haven't got it right yet.
hopefully with a few clear days the river might be in good shape though.

How is the Don today, Is it running clear?  dunno
Was hoping to go out trout fishing on Thursday at Fintray but if not fishable may just have to go to Lochter for a few hours to keep my hand in. Cheers!
