Delgatie Castle Trout Fishery report w/e 14/05/11
« on: May 15, 2011, 15:54:00 PM »
The weather this week has produced some rain but with a minimal effect on water levels or flow as the ground and crops have readily absorbed any moisture. A little less of the bright sunshine this week and this has encouraged the fish to be more active on the surface and immediately sub surface. Whilst considerable numbers of fish are still falling to lures an increasing number are taking on the dry fly and buzzers in various combinations. Quick retrieved "wets" and nymphs have also enjoyed their share of success. Black or black/red have prevailed as the favourite colour combination.
Best catches this week were recorded by:

A Murray                Gardenstown      14 fish
N Thomson             Turriff                  11 fish
G Burton                Gardenstown       11 fish
B Cresswell            Macduff                  9 fish
J McCaw                Turriff                     8 fish
M Ewen  jnr            Turriff                     8 fish
D Low                     Aberdeen              8 fish

Mike Ewen enjoyed a good fight with a well formed fish of 9lb 3oz to record the biggest catch of the week.

The fishery is a Troutmaster water and is open from 8:00am til 9:00pm daily. Bookings are not necessary and all tackle including rods and boats are available for hire.
