Title: Delgatie Castle Trout Fishery report w/e 03/09/11
Post by: The Aul Troot on September 04, 2011, 12:29:44 PM
After the previous weekend of torrential rain and high, coloured water the fishing quickly settled during the week and from Tuesday onwards, good fishing was enjoyed. Surprisingly, although we witnessed good catches falling to various "dry" presentations the top catches of the week were to anglers fishing sub surface and lures. Surely the month for the "daddy long legs" has not slipped past and hopefully we can report on good "dry" catches in the coming weeks. The evening rises have been weaker but the evening air has had a distinctly chilly feel, leading to less surface activity.

The best recorded catches this week fell to;

K Wright, Aberdeen, 16 fish, (Buzzers), N Thomson, Turriff, 12 fish, (Purple Buzzer), C Danes, Foveran, 10 fish, (Green/Black blob), K McInsteray, Motherwell, 10 fish, (Bunny leech), B Hay, Aberdeen, 9 fish, (Buzzer), B Milton, Buckie, 9 fish, (Black Fritz), A Murray, Gardenstown, 8 fish (Black Fritz), A Hay, Buckie, 7 fish, (Black Buzzer), J Watt, Motherwell, 7 fish, (Okay Dokey).

The weather this coming week appears to be a bit mixed but nothing that should prevent fishing or reasonable catches.
