The 1st of February signals the opening of the salmon fishing season on the Aberdeenshire River Dee. I will be out in pursuit of a coveted opening day springer again and I hope to continue my lucky streak of catching a fish during this annual trip to Park. Conditions are looking favorable and I can't wait to get out there again and have a cast on the Dee!
The river levels are looking good and the weather conditions, although promising to be a bit windy, should be fine too. Here's hoping the fish are there in good numbers and the Dee enjoys another resurgent year with improved salmon numbers. A good start tomorrow would go a long way to kick starting that run.
It's not only the Dee that opens tomorrow as there are a few other rivers such as the Tweed which open their doors to anglers again. Good luck to anyone out on the river tomorrow and I'll look forward to seeing the many pictures posted on the various social media sites this week.
