Title: Delgatie Castle Trout Fishery report w/e 15/8/15
Post by: The Aul Troot on August 16, 2015, 15:58:15 PM
The weather for the past week has remained decidedly mixed with temperatures lower than seasonally expected and a northerly breeze still persisting. With one day of bright sunshine and higher temperatures the weather again slipped on Friday/Saturday to dreich, wet conditions. The result of these weather conditions has seen the fish appear unsettled with, on some days, good surface activity followed by another day of no apparent activity near to the surface. However, it was pleasing to see that the dry fly emerged as the best catcher this week followed by a variety of smaller presentations including buzzers, spiders and snatchers with Diawl Bach being the best sub surface presentation.
The best recorded catches this week fell to; A Murray, Gardenstown, 14 fish, (white fritz, olive fritz), B Gibb, King Edward, 12 fish, (buzzers, diawl bach), A Cowie, Fraserburgh, 10 fish, (blob, diawl bach), N Thomson, Turriff, 8 fish, (buzzers), A Hall, Macduff, 7 fish, (black buzzers), J West, Fraserburgh, 7 fish, (shepman's buzzer), S Edwards, Turriff, 7 fish, (dry fly), D Low, Aberdeen, 6 fish, (dry fly), J Dalziel, Aberdeen, 6 fish, (snatcher, spider).
Next week is predicted to remain settled at least for the first half and hopefully these conditions will settle the fish and allow patterns to emerge.
