Delgatie Castle Trout Fishery report w/e 25/4/15
« on: April 26, 2015, 13:45:40 PM »
What a difference a week makes! After tow or three weeks of higher than average temperatures the mercury plummeted this week and a cold north easterly wind took over. The change in temperature together with a moderate rainfall played havoc with the fish feeding habits and catches proved more elusive. Whilst sinking and intermediate lines with a variety of lures attached continued to yield catches it was undoubtedly the buzzer in various shapes, sizes and colours which dominated proceedings for the past week. The best recorded catches this week fell to ; A Murray, Gardenstown, 14 fish, (black fritz, white nomad), L Adams, Aberdeen, 14 fish, (buzzers), G Littler, Newmachar, 11 fish, (lime green buzzer), N Thomson, Turriff, 10  fish, (buzzers), C Watson, New Deer, 10 fish, (buzzers), J Walker, Banff, 6 fish, (orange fritz), W Deeming, Peterhead, 6 fish, (black buzzer).
The forecast for the coming week suggests a continuation of the cold spell with winds persisting. However, the emergence of surface activity suggests "dry fly" time is just around the corner.
Delgatie Castle Trout Fishery is open seven days from 8am til 8pm and visitors and novices are always welcome. Booking is not necessary and boats (where required) rods and tackle is available for hire at the fishery. For up to date information phone Bob on 07980 999 006. :z15
