Roy Craigie from the Shean Lodge Fishery reports that following 4 weeks of exceptionally dry weather with very low water, some rain arrived on Monday 25th to give a small dirty spate of 2ft. The river settled in the evening and some nice trout were caught and returned.
For the remainder of the week there was good water and with some wonderful sea trout fishing on both the Lodge and Lower stretches. Total catch was 4 salmon (up to 10lbs), 8 Grilse ( up to 6.5lbs), and 59 sea trout (up to
3lbs) the majority of which were returned. This was a lovely weeks fishing, and with more water in the river to day prospects for September are excellent.
