Hey Noel

Glad to hear you're back. I'm not sure about the Don beats but the Deveron opens on the 15th.  :z16

Well must be something new to me Rob as I've fished this water for years and with one beat exception (and this a very recent experiment) there's no Sunday fishing, trout or otherwise, but will ask the right guys to confirm.  Happy days if Sundays are on the menu, if not then Don's not too far away.

Any sign of a spring fish yet? River in good shape for it, hoping to get a few hours on Saturday.


Cheers

Reports through Somers -  a couple of fresh fish earlier last week above Inverurie. A fish or two have been hooked and lost on association water according to one source. Not heard anything for a few days now.....  :z16

Tight lines for Saturday Ben!

Cheers Liam.  Dee has been a little slow the last few days after a decent start in opening week, really hoping for a decent run this year.

Fished at Kemnay after work yesterday (Tuesday).  This time last year I saw a fair few kelts splashing about and even the odd fresh fish. Yesterday I saw nothing, not a Scooby! The water looked perfect to me, up but running clear, with a nice flow to it.

I gave up at 5.30 when it started to snow on me.  :X2

Fished Kemnay from 1 until 5 on Friday. Terrible wind, although it was down stream off my left shoulder, so castable.

River running high but clear, no touches but at least this time I saw a fish crash out twice, so I know there is at least one there!! Bit depressing really.
