Another week and another couple of fish in the book which can be described as steady if not spectacular.
Heavy rain throughout Tuesday night gave a significant rise in water levels and made the following two days difficult to fish. Levels have settled back down and a few fish have started to been seen moving through the beats.
Special mention must go to our well known resident ghillie Eddie Bremner.
Eddie would regularly be found on the banks of the Thurso throughout January and February often in conditions you would not put your dog out in hunting for that elusive early spring salmon, his dedication and determination was finally rewarded on Saturday when he caught a fresh 10 pounder from Jamie Sutherland's on beat 9. Well done Eddie, a thoroughly deserved fish.
With the clocks going forward last weekend we have daylight to 8pm and it has definitely felt like spring has got a solid grip on the banks of the Thurso, unfortunately if the forecast is to be trusted that is all about to come to a crashing halt, we have had a few beasts from the east over the past few years, next week the force from the North is going to give Caithness a battering with gales and periods of snow and daytime temperatures of zero . I fully expect Eddie to catch a few next week.
Tight lines and stay safe
