Delgatie Castle Trout Fishery report w/e 13/8/16
« on: August 14, 2016, 12:52:05 PM »
The beginning of the week saw horrendous fishing conditions with gale force winds accompanied by heavy, persistent rain. The effects of the weather conditions were that as well as being incompatible for anglers, the water also became fairly coloured. However, after Wednesday, conditions improved and the back end of the week yielded good catches and saw a continuance of the success of the dry fly and other smaller presentations. The best recorded catches for this period fell to; A Murray, Gardenstown, 34 fish over multiple visits, (white fritz, budgie), J Kerr, Macduff, 18 fish, (buzzers), P Watt, Gardenstown, 11 fish, (grey nymph), J West, Fraserburgh, 8 fish, (cormorant), I Watt, Turriff, 7 fish, (dry flies), S McLean, Fraserburgh, 6 fish, (black lure), D Bain, Glasgow, 5 fish, (montana), J Gough, Fraserburgh, 5 fish, (dry flies), B Burnett, Turriff, 5 fish, (dry flies).

The forecast for the coming period suggests settled conditions and hopefully the fish will settle to predictable feeding patterns.

Delgatie Castle Trout Fishery is open seven days from 8am and visitors are welcome with booking not being necessary. Boats (where required) rods and tackle is available for hire at the fishery. For up to date information and conditions phone Bob on 07980 999 006. :z15
