I know the club water totaled 450 or so for the year. This is some going considering it was only a few years ago the total was only 58
Due to high water levels the some private beats faired better than others, but I know numbers were all around or above average for the year.
Loch ness on the other hand has had its best year in over a decade.
Another club water I fish on the conon, totaled 160+for the season and this was with a one fish a day limit, leave the river, regardless of releaing the fish or not. In the 1990's their 5 yr average was only 38 fish, and this was at a time where no catch limitations applied.
Good to see such improvments!!
