(Last updated: Monday 24th April)
Looking at the availability for the upcoming week I would recommend Pedwell, Ladykirk and Horncliffe beats should have a good chance of some action this coming week.
The next week the water levels are expected to remain pretty steady with the dry weather and cold nights we have had lately. The forecast looks quite settled with no significant rain in the forecast, and we
could really do with wee lift would to freshen things up. Conditions are really good for the majority of beats at the moment and with the lower water conditions I would expect fish to start being caught below
Water temperatures are starting to rise to a level where dressed flies in sizes 8 or 10, tubes around the ½” to ¾” size should be about right. Blacko's Dee Special, Ghillie, Underghillie & Girnal Shrimp should bring success fished off floating lines with poly leaders, while on the spinning front the 13cm Blue Rapala, Black/Gold Rapala Tobies in 18gm – 28gm and with the water temperature getting up a bit now the flying c should bring some success. As always come prepared and always listen to the advice of your boatman or ghillie.
