Weather hits Delgatie fishery

Share this article

This week’s report has been abbreviated due to the weather conditions and the lack of activity among both anglers and fish. A week dominated by rain, leading to coloured water, wind, leading to adverse casting conditions and low temperatures leading to very cold anglers. However, despite these conditions we are able to report that of the anglers who appeared, there were no blank days although the numbers caught do not merit entry in our top anglers table being mostly in the 2 to 4 range with the exception of A Murray of Gardenstown who landed 10 fish using a white/pink fritz and N Thomson of Turriff who had 7 fish on buzzers.

The forecast for the coming week indicates a lowering in temperature and the mention of snow on the horizon. At the time of writing (Sunday) we are enduring very blustery conditions and a constant precipitation or mixed rain and snow.
