Delgatie Castle Trout Fishery report w/e 30/5/15
« on: May 31, 2015, 12:50:53 PM »
At last we have seen the last of May which has been less than conducive as far as fishing was concerned with unseasonably low temperatures and an almost daily North North Westerly wind which kept the air and water colder than we would expect. The result was that fish are less active and any feeding fish are to be caught at lower levels with lures being the preferred tackle. Despite these conditions some good catches were recorded with almost all fish falling to lure presentations and the occasional buzzer both of which were fished deep. The best recorded catches fell to; K Fraser, Greeness, 21 fish, (various lures, bibio, buzzer), A Murray, Gardenstown, 21 fish, (white nomad, pink/white fritz), A Cowie, Fraserburgh, 20 fish, (WSW cat;'s whisker, black nomad), R Ewen, Macduff, 12 fish, (buzzers), L Davidson, Macduff, 12 fish, (olive cat's whisker), C Field, Fraserburgh, 11 fish, (white nomad), P Cowie, Fraserburgh, 10 fish, (silver lure), G Littler, Newmachar, 10 fish, (black buzzer), N Thomson, Turriff, 9 fish, (buzzers), J Mackay, Macduff, 7 fish, (WSW, blobs), S MacLean, Fraserburgh, 7 fish, (olive fritz), P Wilson, Aberdeen, 7 fish, (WSW, blobs).
Delgatie Castle Trout Fishery is open seven days from 8am til 9.30pm for the month of June with further time extensions depending on weather conditions. The fishing is open to visitors and novices and booking is not necessary. Boats (where required) rods and tackle is available for hire at the fishery.
The forecast for this week suggests a rise in temperature from mid week which will hopefully encourage fish to feed and operate at the higher level.
