Title: Delgatie Castle Trout Fishery report w/e 22/8/15
Post by: The Aul Troot on August 23, 2015, 13:33:41 PM
The weather during the past week could only be described as variable with temperatures up and down for the seven days, incessant rain on Tuesday/Wednesday interspersed with bright sunshine and a persistent breeze/wind which came from all points of the compass. The result of these mixed conditions lead to confused fish feeding habits with the fish appearing on the surface or indirectly sub surface for short periods and hugging the bottom and only responding to deep fished lies at other times. Dry fly activity was minimal and only for short, intermittent periods. The net result of these conditions were that anglers had to strive hard to contact their quarry and catches were quite restricted. The best of these fell to; A Cowie, Fraserburgh, 20 fish, (blob, diawl bach), P Cowie, Fraserburgh, 16 fish, (kate mclaren, diawl bach), A Murray, Gardenstown, 14 fish, (white fritz, olive nomad), B Cresswell, Macduff, 6 fish, (buzzers, olive lure), J West, Fraserburgh, 6 fish, (black nomad).
The forecast for the coming week is remaining much of the same although temperatures may improve from midweek with rain dying out. Winds should be from a more acceptable westerly direction.
Delgatie Castle Trout Fishery is open seven days from 8am til 8-9pm depending on light conditions.
Visitors and novices are always welcome and booking is not necessary. Boats (where required) rod and tackle is available for hire at the fishery. For up to date information and inquiriesphone Bob on 07980 999 006. :z15
