Water – Coloured
This has been a very frustrating week!!! After weeks of lowish water and dropping loch levels we all hoped for rainfall in the catchment. This we got, however it didn’t fall on the west side but more on the east side. The result was very coloured water from the Roy and Spean and very little Hydro water – water from the Hydro normally dilutes the more coloured and acidic water from our main tributaries. So….although we saw levels go above 1ft on the Beat 2 gauge the fish did not respond in the usual cooperative way. The Spean fish ran through and the Lochy fish became rather hard to temp.
Anyway it wasn’t all doom and gloom…… 5 salmon were landed but LDRS was spoiling the fun with almost 3 times as many lost. The fish were just noncommittal in the take.

Rory Campbell with his first ever Lochy salmon – well done!!
Prospects – As I write this the river is still quite coloured but if we get the rain that is forecast (and in the right area) then maybe the hydro will be kind enough to give us some water – and this may change things in our favour. The fish are there to be caught!!!
