Fish Catch Report by Graham Laurie 5 August 2018

Over the last two weeks we have had quite a few heavy rain showers and at least the loch level is starting to creep up.  This is good because we are already starting to see the Canadian pond weed dying back and the water temperature is down to around eighteen degrees which is good for our fish.  Due to the holiday season the fishing has been very quiet but the anglers who have been managing out have mostly been recording decent catches.

Sunday, 29th Jim Russel returned 13 fish on catch and release using sink tip and pearly cormorants.

Perth AC kept 25 fish for 70lbs plus six on catch and release mostly on floating lines and d/bachs  G Heseltine and Trevor Gibson kept eight fish for 23lbs again on d/bachs.  Two Penicuik anglers kept eight fish for 25lbs on boobies.

On Thursday, 2nd Mr Kelly had a nice limited of four fish for 10lbs on dabblers.  Mr Ritchie also had four fish for 12lbs on buzzers.  Messrs Dobbie and Paterson returned 12 fish again on d/bachs.  Andy Lumsden had his limit of four for 12lbs as did Gibby Scott who also had four fish for 12lbs.  Nigel Muckle returned eight on catch and release and Gavin Dunn had four also on catch and release.  Largs and District AC didn’t have a great day but kept nine for 24lbs on the same day David Patterson returned six.

Bet flies are d/bachs and buzzers on midge tip or floating lines.  We will be stocking next week as usual and the drop in water temperature will help to take some of he stress off the fish
