Only 11 salmon grassed on beats Boleside to Dryburgh last week , out of a toatal 223 on Fishpal
I fished Tweedswood 1 dayand never seen a fin last week, ditto Bemersyde 1 day week before and ditto Dryburgh Lower 1 day the week before ,. so dissapointing to say the least .
River is rising at present , no more rain forcast next week even after the last rise bulk of the catches are on lower and bottom Tweed .
I often walk along the edge of the golf course a few hundred yards upstream on boxing day, there are usually fish in the deeper pools. You never really see big fish at the cauld itself but the big fellows must sneak through, I've saw some lunkers.
Most of it is literally not much more than a drainage ditch. The cauld is about a mile upstream from its confluence with the Tweed, below the cauld its a very small straightish water with few features, above the cauld it it's a tiny burn only a few inches deep for most of a dozen miles or so, not a water that can be fished, even for trout. I'd say it was more of a nursery for parr. There looks like a bit of width at the cauld but it takes a raging flood to look like that. I live near there, the road is known as 'the granites', imo its a spectacular road for driving or cycling, I used to fly model gliders there, its a perfect example of border country.looks a river in its own right at them levels ? guessing 3ft to 4ft spate ?
