    Your a day early, coarse fishing starts on the 16th 😉, probably be a bit busy the first week or so with the maggot drownets, I stick with the trout only stretch for now.

    You could be like the die harder carp anglers fishing lakes who camp out 2 days before waiting for the 16th to come

    Is there such a thing as an 'official' grayling season, or does it just depend on the water that you are fishing.

    I know that it is not good to target grayling April/May as this is their spawning time, but they do not seem to have an official 'season' like say brown trout, were in Scotland it has always been 15th March to 6th April - Individual associations have their own slant on this, mostly 1st April to 30th Sept.

    Are grayling fully recovered by the middle of June, I don't know.

    Any views or discussion welcome.

    Unlike England & Wales Scotland does not have a statutory close season for coarse fish (including grayling).
    I guess this is because coarse fish were never considered important from a sporting or culinary point of view north of the border. I mean who would eat dace when you could have salmon?
