The river is starting to drop off now but there are clearly a few fish in the system
2 x fish to 10lb were reported on Thursday with a large fish lost in Cawdor Pot on Friday.
For a chance of a springer the Nairn seems to be the place to be right now. Last week Alistair Mackellar and Kelvin |Fraser both landed fish of 10lb.
This week is off to a flier with Alistair McKeller and Gordon Rennie both having 3 fish each ranging from 8 - 10lb. Another fish around 9lb has also just been reported from Milton around 2 weeks ago.
Fish are definitely around, both Charlie Black and Peter Wall have both lost springers. Finally a 9lb sea-liced fish was landed by Alistair Mackellar from Milton. The Nairn has good water currently and with increasing temperatures the chances of connecting with one of these early fish are good.
The opening ceremony had a good turnout although the water was on the rise and by the afternoon was unfishable. The river remained high through the following week however as the water started to drop off an 8lb springer was returned by David Johnstone from Colins pool on Saturday 14th. Fish are being reported from other rivers so definitely worth a cast.
