Following some much needed rain at the end of the month the Finnock and sea Trout have now moved up into the Nydie tidal pools and beyond into Kemback. Reports are coming in of healthy numbers of Brown Trout in the Pouch and in the wards above Cupar in addition to the first year run sea Trout entering the lower reaches It seems that Brown Trout are still plentiful, albeit at a size that the river can sustain.
Apart from one report of an 8lb salmon caught then lost at the net, resident sea Trout & salmon have been hard to tempt in the mid months heatwave. Thankfully with rain forecast for the first few weeks of August and temperatures beginning to come down things will improve soon.
Good news for the future. Although reports from the Pouch noted an absence of salmon parr in the pouch there are good numbers in the fast riffles below the Tattie hole. Haste ye Back.
