River Tweed River Report Week Ending 25th March

The rising water over the weekend left us faced again with mucky brown water at the start of the week. There was virtually zero Fishing below the Teviot confluence as a combination of high water and a return of the awful chocolate colour spoilt yet another weeks sport.

Above the Teviot fish were caught with the Floor's beats and Makerstoun picking away. Mr Alex Knox owner of The Contented Vine restaurant in Kelso, landed a lovely fish from Upper Floors on a Tay Salmon Fly, Black and Yellow Pot Belly Pig. A superb 21lber was also caught on Tuesday.

Speaking with Makerstoun's Head Boatman Mr Colin Pringle, “It was a good week considering the conditions with 6 Springer's landed, some of which were sea liced. The Jora Gold was amongst the successful flies for the week. Quite a few fish seen in the beat on Saturday”

On the Junction, Dr Hennigan's party landed 6 along with 1 Sea Trout. Fishing was limited due to the water conditions with Wednesday seeing the best of the action with 3 landed, while on Saturday there was a lot of activity unfortunately 4 fish were lost.

Lower Birgham had the only fish caught below the Ednam Junction

At Upper North Wark fishing was mostly done in coloured water throughout the week. Some brief encounters and a couple of Sea Trout help to keep the spirits up.

The week ended with the level at Sprouston 2ft 4” and the water temperature is 46.

Looking at the availability for the upcoming week I would recommend Upper Makerstoun, Lower Birgham and Upper North Wark, these beats all been well should have a good chance of some action this coming week.
