Week comm 18th May
This was a week of 2 distinct halves. The first half was dominated by high water levels with overflow spilling from Loch Laggan and Mucomir. This is never good for fishing. Whether it’s less oxygenated water or colder temps or both I’m not entirely sure, but the salmon don’t like it! That said, Andy O’Neil still managed to temp a nice 14lber from Garrabudhie stream with 7ft on the gauge. It was Friday before we saw the river down below 2ft. The fishing improved greatly on the falling levels and we landed 9 salmon between 12-16lbs over the 2.5 days. David Lake had a memorable afternoon on Beat 4 with 3 fish from the tail of Big Rock.
We had very few salmon in the above size bracket last May/June – most were bigger, but so far this year they all appear to be like peas in a pod……mid-sized, well conditioned and hard fighting. Perfect!
With a steady river for the start of this coming week and good overheads, I would like to think the fishing will good. This week usually produces a storlaks………so fingers crossed!
