** Week 38 is the ‘odd days’ at the end of the season from the last full week (week 37) until the end of the season (31 October).  This means there are some years where there is no fishing whatsoever.  Starting from 2017 and working up to 2026, over the next 10 years, the number of days fishing attributed to week 38 are as follows; 2 days, 3 days, 4 days, 0 days, 0 days, 1 day, 2 days, 4 days, 5 days, 0 days.  Whilst the number of days varies significantly by year, the 10 year average catch of 8.0 salmon & grilse is not weighted so the actual fishing is better than the figures would suggest, when there is fishing.

 

The rotational certificates include 2 weeks every year (Rotation 1 and 2 also additionally include the week 38 ‘odd days’ some years).  The rotations occur over 5 years and the weeks in the rotations are as follows;

Rotation 1 – weeks 19 & 27; weeks 20 & 28; weeks 21 & 29; weeks 22 & 30; weeks 18, 23 & 38.

Rotation 2 – weeks 19 & 28; weeks 20 & 29; weeks 22 & 30; weeks 23 & 36; weeks 18, 23 & 38.

Rotation 3 – weeks 18 & 26; weeks 20 & 28; weeks 21 & 29; weeks 22 & 30; weeks 23 & 35.
