With the recent rain the river is now almost high enough to tempt a few fish in from the estuary. Time to dust off the rod . Tight lines.
Thanks to those who have already given feedback and are helping with the Ranuculous weed & habitat survey on the river. Others are asking about re stocking Brown Trout, not straightforward given the recently introduced Scottish wide conservation measures forbidding the introduction of breeding trout. There is some good advice and a video on stocking in the link below. Please let the committee know what you think.
The Tay Board bailiffs will be carrying out a survey of the Eden between Pitlessie and Cupar over the next few weeks, The Boards Drone is a nifty piece of kit and can video the river to monitor recovery of the Ranuculous water crowfoot weed lost to pollution in 2016. This weed was once plentiful here and is considered essential cover for survival of juvenile fish. The Tay Board checked out the location today at Cults Mill.
After a stormy start to the season and some coloured water early in March reports are coming in of fresh sea Trout being caught in the Pouch and Estuary around the 2 lb mark.
