Stronger catches at Delgatie Castle

This week has seen a dramatic difference in the weatherat Delgatie Castle Trout Fishery with the temperatures dropping quite dramatically as the week progressed.

This was matched by an increased activity within the fishing, and catches towards the end of the weekend were much stronger than the earlier part of the week.

The fish have also risen in the water column and are more keen to attack Buzzers and Nymphs at the top than to fall to lures fished deep.

The bigger fish have also made a return to feeding with several in the 6lb plus range falling to anglers. The main returns this week were recorded to the following anglers:

J Murison, Turriff, 19 fish, (Cat’s Whiskers, Buzzers, Blob), A Murray, Gardenstown, 12 fish, (Cat’s Whisker), N Thomson, Turriff, 10 fish, (Buzzers), G Linklater, Peterhead, 8 fish, (Yellow Dancer), K Fraser, Greeness, 7 fish, (Blob), S Fraser, Macduff, 7 fish, (Buzzers), J Alexander, Macduff, 7 fish, (Buzzers), D Brown, Ellon, 6 fish, (Cat’s Whisker).

Four anglers - J Murison, D Nesbit, K Fraser and G Linklater all recorded fish of 6lb.
