2018 Cornhill Season catches

21/10/2018

We ended the 2018 season with a total of 78 the breakdown was 55 Salmon and 23 Grilse. The most productive months were April with 29 followed by September with 26. We did of course have a complete drought period of about 8 weeks in mid summer. September showed a big improvement and we had some big fish over the latter part of the season we had two at 16lb one at 18lb one at 20lb and one at 22lb  a couple of big fish were hooked and lost and i saw several fish in the top teens and during the last week of the season i saw one salmon show a couple of times in the March pool that i would estimate to be upwards of 25lb. The most productive pool over the season was the McKenzie pool, then came March pool followed by Clump pool, Lairds Cast & McGregor pool all on an equal footing.

The most productive week was an April week when 15 springers were landed 11 of them sea liced, in these present times an excellent catch made on a two rod beat.
