Delgatie Castle Trout Fishery report w/e 11/10/14
« on: October 12, 2014, 13:27:30 PM »
This week we experienced a distinctly autumnal feel to the weather with low temperatures early in the morning although good fishing weather developed as the day progressed. However, the main feature of the weather was the incessant rainfall during the weekend which brought the water levels up and led to the colouring of the water becoming distinctly dirty and virtually unfish-able until Wednesday/Thursday when fresh water allowed the colour to dissipate and become fish-able again. The weather conditions impacted on angler numbers however towards the weekend activity increased and some good catches were recorded amongst the best of which were; P Keir, Fyvie, 87 fish over three sessions (Olive Fritz/Black Pennel), A Murray, Gardenstown, 16 fish, (White Nomad, Black/Green Fritz), K Meddocks, Aberdeen, 11 fish, (Pink Bunny Leech), C MacMillan, Aberdeen, 8 fish, (Pink Bunny Leech), S MacLean, Fraserburgh, 7 fish, (Olive WSW).
Now that the water levels have returned to normal with a good throughput of fresh water and the clarity is returning, coupled with a more settled forecast, we are looking forward to a productive weeks fishing.
Delgatie Castle Trout Fishery is a Troutmaster water and is open seven days from 8am. Closing time is controlled by light conditions but at present remains at 6pm although this will be revised during the next two weeks.
Visitors and novices are always welcome and booking is not necessary. Boats (where required) rods and tackle are available for hire at the fishery.
