Catches rise significantly as temps drop
With a 30 degree Fahrenheit drop from Sunday anglers were enjoying a red letter day on the Dee yesterday. There have been 70 salmon and 17 sea trout reported so far with more to follow. It is very pleasing news which sees the spring catch from FishDee beats rise to 1672, a bit behind the 5 year average of 2028. There are two more days catches to help swell the spring totals further and hopefully we will reach approximately 1800 salmon with a bit of luck. Interestingly the spring catch 5 years ago (one salmon lifecycle) was just over 1600 salmon. We went on that year to enjoy a tremendous run of summer salmon and grilse and fingers crossed we hope we shall experience a good summer grilse and salmon run.Sean Stanton at Ballogie advised there had been a good big run of new fish coming forward over the weekend.
Here is the summary so far for yesterdays catches:
|Lower Crathes and W Durris||3|
|Little Blackhall and Inchmarlo||1|
|Waterside and Ferrar||1|
|Headinch and Cambus O’May||7|
|Monaltrie and Lower Invercauld||7|
