Fish are operating at the top levels of the water and this week has seen further activity to surface action with the hopper proving successful. Sub surface catches have all been obtained on buzzers of various colours but with green being predominant whilst the lure fishermen have still been achieving success with fritz on a relatively fast retrieve.
The best recorded catches this week fell to; P Keir, Fyvie, 20 fish, (olive fritz), A Murray, Gardenstown, 17 fish,l (black fritz), A Gibson, Gardenstown, 16 fish, (buzzers), A Buchan, Turriff, 15 fish, (buzzers), N Thomson, Turriff, 12 fish, (buzzers), K Fraser, Greeness, 10 fish (buzzers), J Graham, Elgin, 10 fish, (hoppers), B Gray, Largue, 8 fish, (buzzers).
