Title: Delgatie Castle Trout Fishery report w/e 7/3/15
Post by: The Aul Troot on March 08, 2015, 13:21:57 PM
What a difference a week makes. From mid week the air and water temperatures rose slightly although a westerly wind still persisted. The fishing improved greatly and good catches were recorded and encouragingly the fish seemed interested in smaller lures, nymphs and buzzers as well as lures fished deep on a slow retrieve. With the fish being active higher in the water column, most anglers enjoyed catches with the best amongst them being; A Gibson, Gardenstown, 26 fish, (olive WSW), C Wattt, St Fergus, 23 fish, (various lures), J Mackay, Macduff, 23 fish, (lime green fritz), L Adams, Aberdeen, 17 fish, (cormorant, minkies), A Murray, Gardenstown, 13 fish, (fritz, cat's whisker), L Bain, Australia, 10 fish, (pink lure), S Wilson, King Edward, 9 fish, (yellow dancer), J Dalziel, Peterhead, 8 fish, (brown fritz, white/red lure), J Hanson, Turriff, 8 fish, (cormorant), N Thomson, Turriff, 8 fish, (buzzers).
The weather forecast for the next week remains mixed with lower temperatures and the possibility of rain together with a continuing breeze.
