Poor start to fishing at Delgatie Trout Fishery

The week started with very poor weather at Delgatie Castle Trout Fishery, making conditions impossible on Sunday and Monday although conditions improved with good fishing in the latter half of the week.

The temperature drop has favoured the lure fisherman although good catches have been recorded to drys and buzzers.

The best recorded catches this week fell to: A. Murray, Gardenstown (22 fish, black/olive fritz, cat’s whiskers); J. McCow, Turriff (14 fish, orange gold head); D. Coull, Rosehearty (12 fish, various lures); C. McPhee, Peterehad (12 fish, buzzers,scruff); A. Anderson, St Fergus (8 fish, olive/orange lures); D. Stanford, Peterhead (7 fish, buzzers); M. Ferguson, Turriff (7 fish, orange blob, red damsel); J. Ritchie, Inverurie (6 fish, hopper); J. Duncan, Peterhead (6 fish, various lures); D. Reid, Banff (6 fish, dry fly).

The forecast for the week looks to continue favourably and should lead to some good angling.

Delgatie Castle Trout Fishery is a Troutmaster water and is open seven days from 8am til 7.30pm while light permits. Visitors/novices are welcome.
