River Tweed River Report Week Ending 13th May 2017 - Tay Salmon Fly

River Tweed River Report Week Ending 13th May

Another week of low water conditions, Easterly winds and Bright sunshine, hasn’t helped to improve the catches. Again the beats below Coldstream faired best.

Between Kelso and Coldstream catches are still quite quiet, Junction 5, Upper Hendersyde 2, Sprouston 4, Hendersyde 4 and Birgham Dub 2, West Learmouth 1 were the only beats between Kelso and Coldstream to get some sport.

Those fishing below Coldstream faired a bit better in the lower water conditions with 30 fish reported. The best of the catches were at Tillmouth 11, Ladykirk 6 & Tweedhill 12.

The week ended with the level at Sprouston 1” and the water temperature is 53.

Looking at the availability for the upcoming week I would suggest Pedwell, Ladykirk, Horncliffe and Tweedhill beats should have a good chance of some action this coming week.

The forecast looks like some heavy rain coming in Monday with the wind swinging to the south west. A few other showers are forecast during the week, so we will just need to wait and see what amount of rain we get. The ground is very dry so could soak up a lot of it. Conditions are really good for the majority of beats towards the lower end of the river at the moment and given these lower water conditions I would expect fish to start being caught below Coldstream. If we do get a lift there could be some good fishing to be had in the Middle/Lower river.

Water temperatures are starting to rise to a level where dressed flies in sizes 8 or 10 should be about right. Blacko’s Dee Special, Gledswood Shrimp, Ghillie, Stenton Shrimp, Frances and if you fancy giving a Sunray Shadow a strip it 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.
