Weekly Report

Below is the weekly report for Sunday, January 30, 2022


We head towards the end of January still looking for our first fish of the season and with the weather being relatively mild and settled for the week before the arrival of storm Malik on Saturday there is no doubt if there was more fishing pressure an early spring salmon would have been found. With air temperatures above average, the water is also well above what we would normally expect for the time of year averaging 6'C (43' Fahrenheit)

More storms are expected into the new week with storm Corrie first to arrive over Caithness on Sunday. We also have the largest tides of the winter midweek and as any experienced Thurso angler will tell you those bigger tides always help pull fresh fish in and push them up into the river.

One final note this week, the SEPA website has not been updating the Halkirk river level gauge for a few months now. The River Thurso website will as always continue to update with the added text of "Rising, Falling or steady when applicable.


Tight lines next week.
