Fishing has definitely started to slow down here on Tweed, due mainly to low water conditions and a lack of fresh fish entering the river system. We are however, forever hearing of some sea-liced fish still being caught but in very low numbers.
The water temperature is in the high 40’s and low 50’s which is ideal skating temperature and ideal for fishing the Sunray. The water is gin clear which is ideal and ideal for the trout fishers.
Rae Borras was fishing at Bemersyde last week and managed to catch a lovely fresh 7lber on the Sunray – well done Rae, showing us all how to do it! His fishing to the conditions certainly payed off dividends in the end.
There are plenty of march brown hatches for the trout fishers but few rises, due mainly to the cold strong winds that have been plaguing us lately. Once these winds subside the trout fishing will get going in earnest. It’s still a little early to be seeing quantities of seatrout but that will happen once we get a meaningful rise in water levels.
Good to see fish being caught as far spread out from Tweedhill and up to Bemersyde on Friday. Let’s see what this week brings! Tight lines to all.
