Cramond Bridge one of the eye-catching beats on the River Almond which is fishing well

Cramond Angling Association secretary Josef Arndt reports good start to the season on the River Almond with some good fly hatches coming off now the temperature has increased.

Reports are of fish being caught on all beats on dries, nymphs and wets. Lots of fish rising on all beats when the hatches are on so good dry fly sport to be had.

The river level is relatively low at the moment but clarity is good, with most of the better fish currently sitting in the deeper, oxygenated water.

Season and day tickets are available and for details contact
