The past week has proved very productive for anglers. The wind during the week varied in direction but never rose to becoming a nuisance coupled with the occasional shower to freshen the water. Fortunately weed has not presented itself as a problem so far this year and by actively cutting, the water area is still almost completely clear. Temperature during the week was moderate and kept the fish actively feeding.
Landings for the week were very good with over 300 fish falling to anglers who recorded the following catches: A Murray, Gardenstown, 50 fish, (various lures), T O’Donnell, Hull, 30 fish, (buzzers), P O’Donnell, Hull, 23 fish, (buzzers), P Wilson, Aberdeen, 21 fish, (blobs), The Kukowski family, Aberdeen, 18 fish, (olive damsel, dry fly, buzzers), S Edwards, Turriff, 17 fish, (dry fly, buzzers), N Thomson, Turriff, 15 fish, (buzzers, bloodworm), J Zacha, Australia, 14 fish, (dry fly), D Zacha, Inverallochy, 14 fish, (dry fly), P Broadley, Ellon, 14 fish, (damsel, spider), D Bowman, Aberdeen, 13 fish, (dry fly, buzzers), B Burnett, Turriff, 10 fish, (red spider), G Ellington, Ellon, 10 fish, (buzzers), J West, Fraserburgh, 9 fish, (black fritz).
