Mount Falcon Hotel

With the rain came the fish, a mixture of late run springers and grilse. Then June total from Mount Falcon fisheries was 28. This was for a relatively low angling effort in the first two weeks. Week 1 saw one fish caught,  Week 2 we had five fish,  Week 3 seven and the last week fifteen fish.

Amoungst those who caught fish were the Philippe Kerbrat group from France, who had 3 fresh Salmon from the Wallpool and Cunninghams. The Goode party had a great sport on Cunninghams in the last week of June with 5 Salmon. ( best fish 10 lbs) .

Those on our 3 River packages also enjoyed success, with good fish taken on  The Erriff,  The Owenduff and The Ridge Pool.  On the 1st of June the Mitchell party ( USA) had a sea-liced 5lb fish from Rock House on The Owenduff this was followed by 2 Salmon the follwing day from The Ridge Pool.

In total guests had 5 Salmon off The Erriff ( 4lb - 9 lb). The rainfall meant that the Owenduff had a number of rises in water level over the month, and those lucky enough to be there when the water was falling had some spectacular sport with both Salmon and Sea- trout ( all sea-trout must be returned). In total some 19 salmon and 28 sea-trout ( up to 3lb in weight) were taken off this fly only river. All sea-trout and the majority of the Salmon were returned. 

Prospects for July look good, more rain is promised and this will help the spate rivers, the water levels in The Moy are good and fish are holding in Mount Falcon pools. on the 1st of  July the Brown Party had 4 fish from The Wallpool.
