CASTLE FORBES ESTATE – FISHING REPORT FOR SEASON 2022
2022 CATCHES – MIGRATORY FISH
(a) Salmon and Grilse 11
(b) Sea Trout 1
Our average annual Salmon & Grilse catch over the last 5 seasons is 22.
SUMMARY OF SEASON 2022
Maybe not a season which suffered from the pandemic restrictions, but this season was blighted by very low water levels; again, not surprisingly, lack of "fishing effort" resulted. Unfortunately, this, in part, was due to a few for our regulars having to cancel as a result of catching Covid. Hopefully, they can make up for their disappointment in 2023! The last two months of the season saw the bulk of the Salmon & Grilse catch.
On a positive note, some great days were recorded by those fishing for Brown Trout. Two examples being ... in June, from one angler: "Incredible day. 40/50 in total. Very few small. Approx 15 @ 3/4 lbs & 6 around 1lb" Then in August, another caught "34 throughout the day - largest over 4lbs & 4 in excess of 2lbs"
Please complete 'returns' accurately and pass on to us promptly. Nil returns are required and any additional constructive comments, relevant to the Castle Forbes fishing, are always welcome.
Our best wishes to all for season 2023 - it must be better!
