River Tweed River Report Week Ending 4th March 2017 - Tay Salmon Fly

River Tweed River Report Week Ending 4th March

The week started with the dirty water that plagued the end of last week. Two 8ft Floods over the weekend saw the river pretty much unfishable at the start of the week, and the river below the Teviot junction held the colour for much longer than we would have liked.

The water clarity began to clear above the Teviot on Wednesday and Mr Nigel Devine fishing Lower Floors had a good day landing 3 Springer’s on the fly, while Upper Floors picked away landing 3 for the week.

On Thursday Mr Ben Richardson fishing the Junction landed a lovely 16lb fish; a 2nd fish of 15lb was also landed by Mr Colin Chisholm.

On Friday the water clarity was reasonable and there were fish caught below Kelso for this first time this week. The Junction landed 3 before lunch, with Mr Shunshuke Washiya landed fish of 9lb and 12lb and Mr Willie Wood landed a 12lb all fish were sea liced, a further 4 fish were lost.

Fishing on Hendersyde Mr Andrew Taylor landed two fish weighing 7lb and 14lb, while Mr James Harrison landed a superb fish of 17lbs. On Sprouston Mr Andrew Edge landed two on the fly.

Fishing on Upper North Wark, Mr Jonathan Graham landed a nice sea liced fish on 9lbs from the Mill Stream on the fly, he also had a brief encounter with a 2nd fish. South Wark and Lower North Wark also had fish.

On Saturday morning we were greeted with rising water again, it just seems never ending lately. However it would appear that there are a few fish in the system, we just need the conditions to settle down and do we can get fishing properly. 

The week ended with the level at Sprouston 3ft 3” and the water temperature is 40.

Looking ahead to next week the forecast looks quite settled. The water is carrying colour this morning and rising at the tops which I’d think is snow melt after a few mild days. Once this colour pushes through and the weather settles the settled we should hopefully see a few fish landed.Looking at what flies and lures for the coming week I’d expect the Black and Yellow, Blacko’s Dee Special and Monkey style patterns to continue to bring success once the water clarity improves, while on the spinning front the “Carrot” Rapala and Toby Salmo should bring some success. As always come prepared and always listen to the advice of your boatman or ghillie.
