April 1998

River Tay - Kenmore, Castle, Point and Bolfracks Beats

The beginning of April saw cold north easterly winds, bringing snow flurries and decent falls on the hills. The river dropped back to ideal fishing levels. No fish were reported during the first week, but by Easter Weekend things were looking up.

Nils-Erik Tornquist - a regular from Scandinavian struck lucky (again!) on April 13th with two fish taken from the Point. Both fish fell to an Ally's Shrimp, long tail version size 6, on an intermediate line. The fish were found at the very tail of the pool and may well have been Lyon fish. Both were in immaculate condition, one being sea-liced. The fish weighed 10 and 12lbs respectively. Fish have also been seen above the Kenmore Bridge. Nils reported that fishing was difficult as there were gusty winds from the north and snow flurries. His efforts certainly paid off!

On the trout front a few good fish to two and half pounds have been reported. There have been superb hatches of March Browns - even seen during snow storms! There have also been hatches of a small unidentified pale olive as well a few sedges, probably Grannom.
