Title: Delgatie Castle Trout Fishery report w/e 14/07/12
Post by: The Aul Troot on July 15, 2012, 15:25:49 PM
Is it possible that the weather is improving or is it wishful thinking? This week has seen one or two days which we would almost consider as being fit for fishing - never ideal - but acceptable which , together with two evenings where the fish were more actively looking for the dry fly, led us to believe that we may enjoy a shortened season of angling. These thoughts must be tempered with the reminder that the other five days of the past week have been less than ideal.

Overall a rise in air and water temperature would be wonderful by encouraging the fish to emerge from the depths and the anglers to leave the fireside chair and TV.

This week has seen some reasonable catches which were led by Kevin Simpson, Peterhead who on two visits landed 25 fish on a Cat's Whisker which was sunk and then gradually retreived.

Other noteable catches were:

N Thomson, Turriff, 10 fish, (Buzzers), G Littler, Newmachar, 8 fish, (Black Dancer), A Murray, Gardenstown, 8 fish, (Cat's Whiskers), J Menzies, Westhill, 8 fish, (Dry Flies), S Anderson, Peterehad, 7 fish, (Cat's Whiskers), S Henry, Peterhead, 7 fish, (Cat's Whiskers).

Several fish in the 6-8lb range were landed with J Menzies, Westhill landing a fish of 10lb plus.

A Caithness from Kirkcaldy was the leading junior with 18 fish on several visits and caught on dry fly/Buzzers and a variety of lures.

Delgatie Castle is a Troutmaster water and is open 7 days from 8:00am til 10:00pm. Booking is not necessary and boats, rods and tackle is available for hire.
