Some decent rises in water have given much better prospects than  last year and a reasonable number of fish have run the river already. Many fish around the 10lb mark have been caught by anglers lucky enough have taken a cast.. It is also encouraging to see that good numbers of quality sea-trout have also been reported. Pride of place goes to Jimmy Mackenzie who landed the official first fish of the season since the Clubs catch and release rule ended on 31st May, the fish weighed in at 10lb and  caught at Grahams pool..

The first fish of the season was caught by Gordon Rennie at the end of March, since then a few other fish have been caught. The next rise in water should see a few fish move into the river. FNLT are holding a fishing competition on the 1st June see link below.
