Linlithgow Loch Catch Report - 10/04/2021 - 16/04/2021

Over the last week the weather has been more settled and this makes life a bit more comfortable for our regular anglers. Catches have been quite good and favourite flies are buzzers, diawl bachs, snakes and boobies mostly on floating or intermediate lines. Most boats have as usual been concentrating their efforts to the Town Bay but as I keep saying a lot of relatively undisturbed trout at lying in the top half of the loch (East End). The catches by Ian Dobbie and Andy McAdam prove my point.


On Saturday, 10th Falkirk Fly Dressers kept 12 fish for 32lbs mostly on boobies and snakes. Mr Hainey returned four also on snakes. Waders AC with two boats kept 11 for 33lb plus six returned. Ian Dobbie returned 12 on buzzers and G Sharp returned four also on buzzers.


On Sunday, Mr McKeln returned 12 on black buzzers and Trevor Gibson and partner kept four for 10lb and returned 10 all on black buzzers. Jim Russel returned 15 on buzzers and Andy McAdam had 10 on snakes.


On Monday and Tuesday, we were very quiet but the few lads who did go out all managed to find a fish or two.


On Wednesday, Ian Dobbie had 10 on buzzers and Trevor Gibson kept four for 11lbs plus eight returned again on buzzers.

On Thursday, Mike Connor had four on buzzers and Ian Dobbie, once more up the top end, returned 22 on buzzers and diawl bachs including this specimen -




The Friday anglers mostly did well. Ken Wood and partner returned 20 fish on various lures. Nigel Muckle returned 13 on various buzzers and Gavin Dunn and Jim Mackie kept four for 11lbs and returned 10 on buzzers. Keith Anderson kept four for 12lbs and returned five on diawl bachs. Anglers are reporting a lot of 4lb – 5lb fish being returned.


All areas of the loch are fishable and the fish are well spread out.


We continue with our regular stocking policy.


Boats are available for most days for full day or 4-hour sessions but to avoid disappointment please call 01506 671753 book online in advance.
