River Tweed River Report Week Ending 24th June 2017 - Tay Salmon Fly

River Tweed River Report Week Ending 24th June

Coming off the back of the best week’s catch of the season so far, hopes were high for a reasonable week. However, the return of the sunny, windy weather, combined with the lower river levels didn’t help, but despite this fish were caught throughout the river. This season seems to be quite sporadic from week to week.

Birgham Dub had the best fishing of the week landing 21 Salmon and 4 Sea Trout, the floors beats managed 13 while on the Mertoun beats 8 were landed. Middle Pavilion landed 3 for the week, inc a nice fish for Mr Graham Thomas from the Whirls. West Learmouth and Milne Graden picked away throughout the week.

Makerstoun Head Boatman Mr Colin Pringle reports “Only the 1 for the week, seem to have lost my fish to Rutherford”

Hendersyde Head Boatman Ketch reports “7 for the week, mostly fresh with the biggest fish being 13lbs. Lots of other offers during a week of tricky conditions with bright days and strong winds. Small flies are doing the business for some good summer sport”

 The week ended with the level at Sprouston 3” and the water temperature is 63.

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

The forecast this coming week looks like we could be in for some proper wet weather. Given recent catches on the back of these lifts this could help with the catches.
As always I would like to thank all those who provide me with the information to make this report, it is very much appreciated. If you have information and photo’s you would like included please get in touch with Martin on 07825334427 or

Water temperatures are starting to rise to a level where dressed flies in sizes 10 or 12 should be about right. Blacko’s Dee Special, Gledswood Shrimp, Ghillie, Underghillie, Editor Sunray Shadow, Editor 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 12gm – 20gm 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
