River Tweed River Report Week Ending 25th May 2019 - Tay Salmon Fly


River Tweed River Report Week Ending 25th May


Another week of low water conditions but the fish continue to work their way up through the river system and last week was one of the best weeks catches for the season so far. Considering the water levels are pretty much at summer level fish have really pushed up into the middle river last week where in these conditions you would be expecting the bulk of the fish to be caught below Coldstream. Weather conditions were a bit more favourable with the winds swing back round to South West putting a nice wee chop on the water. As I type we seem to have missed the heavy rain that was forecast and going by the levels what rain has fallen the ground has taken it in, did notice that the farmers have the irrigators on now and that will be taken more water from the desperately low river as it is at the moment. With the level been so low for so long with all the sunny weather we have had there is a fair amount of algae on the bottom of the river in the slower pools. Hopefully the fish keep pushing in this week and hopefully get some decent rain at some point.

Above Kelso 43 fish were reported, with the Mertoun Beats 9 and Rutherford 7 having the best of the fishing. Fishing at Boleside on Saturday Mr Scott Connelly landed 2 fish and Mr Craig Drever finally landed a Tweed Springer after his fishing companions picking up fish regularly the last few weeks, Not needing to take up badminton now Sir! They also lost a couple of fish. Fishing at Dryburgh Upper with Alba Game Fishing all the way from Russia Mr Alexander Nesterov had success during the week also Mr David Thomson managed a nice fish from the deeper water in bright conditions. Bemersyde had 3 on Tuesday with Mr Ian Coghill having some success. Lower Pavilion had 3 for the week, Mr Fox with a nice fish from the Upper Bridge, Mr Justin Young had success in Cowies and a 3rd of taken from the Cauld.

Between Kelso and Coldstream 50 fish were reported with Junction 12, Birgham Dub 10 and the Lees 13 having the best of the fishing. Fishing at the Lees Mr Mark Shaffer landed his first salmon, well done Sir, Mr Peter Lohse and Mr Martin Tees also had success at the Lees. Lower Birgham landed 2 on Friday with Mr Stewart Binns landed both on a Green Highlander and on Saturday Mr Andrew Potts had a lovely fresh fish 3rd cast. Fishing at the Junction Mr Crispin Rodwell had a good 3 days landing 5 for his trip inc 4 on Wednesday and lost 2. Mr Mark Nevin also had success. On Birgham Dub Mr Will Haggas landed some lovely fish.

Below Coldstream 25 fish were reported. Tillmouth had the best of the fishing landing fish every day on their way to 10 for the week. On Waltham and Dritness syndicate water Mr Dave Lorimer had a 9lb fish on Wednesday. On Lennel Mr Bull Treadwell landed a grilse and a sea trout.
On the BDAA beat of the River Whiteadder Mr Callum Simpson landed a nice fish on Monday.

On the River Till, 5 Sea Trout were reported, 2 at Redscar and Upper Tindal and 3 on Tiptoe.

126 Salmon and 16 Sea Trout, with the best fish for the week was 16lb Salmon caught on the Junction beat.

Middle Pavilion Head Ghillie Steven Charlton reports “Decent week considering the hot conditions, three fish landed and a couple of other pulls, A first Salmon for Mr Callum Gwatkins on Tuesday, some sunburn in the middle of the week, then Saturday came a change in weather! Two fish one for Mr Thor Jacobsen in the morning and then Another First Salmon for Mr Jared Morgan, with the weather looking cooler and a chance of rain, hopefully this week can produce a few more!”

Lower Birgham Head Boatman Mr Tom Davis reports “A slow start to the week. Saw very few fish and spent most of the time taking weed off the fly. But on Wednesday it cooled a little and the weed went away. With better fishing conditions we had 2 fish Friday and lost one and one on Saturday. I was hoping that we would have a load of rain over the weekend. But like all forecast rain at the moment it came to nothing. Hope for tight lines this week coming.

Hendersyde Head Boatman Ketch reports “We started the week with a couple of fresh fish and another half dozen missed chances with fish not being kind enough to hang on but as the week went on the offers were few and far between. We ended with 4 salmon so good result considering the low conditions”

On Upper North Wark, it’s fishing hut demolition time.

Lees Head Boatman Mr Malcolm Campbell reports “A good week with 13 landed and almost as many lost. All on #12 silver stoat or posh tosh, floating line with short inter tips. All fresh fish until last two days when it was river fish. Good team of rods using the right size of tackle for the conditions helped”

Berwick and District Angling Association Secretary Dave Cowan reports Whiteadder in need of water and has been at about 4 inches all week. One fish reported from upper Beats, a slightly coloured fish at 9lb. Rain forecast over the week end but doubt it will be enough to see a rise in levels. If it does prospects could be good for the start of the week“


We are blessed in this area to have some superb local fishing tackle shops that are well worth a visit the superb well stocked Borders Gunroom in St Boswells and Fin and Game in Kelso I would recommend for a rummage round which and find out from the local staff what’s currently doing the damage on the river and lochs.

After any fishing trip on the Tweed it’s always worth a trip to Kelso to enjoy a superb meal with great atmosphere in the fabulous Contented Vine restaurant. I would highly recommend it as a must visit during your trip. Call 01573 224777 to reserve your table.

The stunning Saddler Cottage, located within the grounds of Tillmouth Park in now under new ownership. Suitable for fishers and families this lovely cottage is very handily placed for fishing the Lower and Bottom Tweed beats. If you would like more information please check out the link https://www.crabtreeandcrabtree.com/properties/saddler-cottage/

The week ended with the level at Sprouston 1” and the water temperature is 59.


Looking at the availability for this coming week I would recommend the Boleside, Middle Pavilion, Rutherford, Lower Birgham, Ladykirk, Pedwell and Horncliffe beats should have a chance of some action this week.


The forecast this coming week, Monday will be a generally cloudy and cool day. There will be patchy rain, perhaps giving way to heavier and more widespread rain from the north as the day progresses. Tuesday is likely to be cloudy at times and cool with some showers, although these should ease later on. Mostly dry and quite chilly on Tuesday night. Wednesday is also expected to be cloudy at times, perhaps with a few showers developing from the west. A mostly cloudy day on Thursday with a chance of rain, perhaps occasionally heavy as low pressure moves in.

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 any information or photo’s you would like included please get in touch with Martin on 07825334427 or info@taysalmonfly.co.uk


Look at what to bring for the week aheads fishing, Floating lines with assorted poly leaders should suffice on most places with Gledswood Shrimp, Sunray Shadow, Underghillie and Cascade are all capable to tempting that springer on half inch or dressed flies in size 8 and 10. On the spinning front the Black and Gold Rapala, 18-20gm tobies should bring results.

As always come prepared and always listen to the advice of your boatman or ghillie. If you’re needing to top up your fly box ahead of your trip please check out www.taysalmonfly.co.uk
