Blackwater Lodge Newsletter - July 28, 2011
Despite low water conditions we caught fish every day in the last week except for the 25th., when there was actually nobody out fishing at all!
27 grilse & salmon to 14.3lb. have been caught in the last 7 days, including 3 double figure fish & 4 First Ever Salmon.
The river has fined off & is in perfect order for the fly & also the prawn. The clarity is now about 5 feet.
The news is that the main grilse run has appeared on the West coast, so it should make it's way round to us very soon.
Week from July 21-27th.
July 21: 5 grilse to 6.4lb including three First Ever Salmon
for Jake & Jesslyn Hiltz (USA) and Marino Bellini (Italy).
