the loch at Delgatie remains frozen today (friday) with still about an inch of ice.
the prospects aren't looking good for the coming days with temps of -7 on sat night forecast and the fishery closed for christmas day and boxing day it will be well into next week before we can reopen (weather permiting).
an update will be posted here after christmas and also on my mobile phone answering service.

Hi Brian

Haddo was the same today, the ice is still at least an inch to two inches thick. Like Delgatie, it looks like Haddo will be closed until about mid week after Christmas. I will post something on here when I think I can open again.

Best wishes
Mike

In common with other fisheries, Artloch also remains ice bound and is not expected to be ice free until, I suspect, the 27th; please call for update before travelling.

Merry Christmas and I hope that Santa will be good to you.

Hi Folks

I suspect that Haddo will be closed for a few days yet .......... these frosty nights are making the ice even thicker.

I will post something on here as soon as I feel that conditions are improving.

Best wishes

delgatie is also still frozen solid, despite the overnight thaw the ice remains about 3 inch thick and will be a few days yet before it is fishable.

Haddo was still frozen today (Saturday) but the ice is a lot thinner after last night's milder temps and windy conditions.  :z6

I am hoping to be able to open again on Tuesday the 2nd, as long as we don't get more frost of course  :wink:
