The first week was wet and we received some big floods on the 18th (0.78m!), 19th (0.60m), 20th (0.50m), 21st (0.50m) with nice water over the weekend too.

The gauge average for the second week read 0.15 metres. 30 visiting anglers fished over the fortnight and some good catches of salmon were recorded.

On the 20th, Alan Watson recorded 2 grilse weighing 4 & 6lb caught and released on fly from beats 6 & 4 respectively. Brian Stark had a good day reporting 4 grilse weighing 1, 3, 5 & 6lb caught and released on a spinner from beat 3 having hooked and lost 3 others.
