Over the last week, we have had relatively few anglers out on the Loch. This is normal for this time of year but some good catches have been caught by a variety of techniques.
On Sunday 20th Mr McCutchen kept 4 fish for 16lbs, best fish 6lbs caught with a Damsel on a floating line. Jim Russell caught and returned 13 fish with Diawl Bachs and Fabs on a Midge Tip line. Some of Jim's catches -
The Saturday Club kept 8 fish for 27lbs plus returned 10, best flies were red Diawl Bachs below a yellow Fab on a Floating line. On the same day, evening rod Mr Saunders returned 4 fish on a Black Buzzer.
During the week, Ian Young and his partner out in the Wheelyboat kept 5 fish for 16lbs. Ron Thompson kept 2 for 6lbs and returned 12 fish. Mr Kint and partner kept 6 fish for 19lbs, returning 24 mostly caught by a blue Diawl Bach. Alistair Fyvie kept 2 for 6lbs and returned a further 4 fish. Evening anglers Edinburgh Mechanics kept 12 fish for 38lbs, all on Boobies and Mr Allardyce kept 2 fish weighing 6lbs.
Friday anglers Gavin Dunn and Jim Russell kept 3 fish for 12lbs and returned a further 11 caught on Diawl Bachs, a nice Bluey caught by Gavin -
also, Mr Saunders returned 8 fish.
It must be mentioned that we have a strong green algae bloom on the Loch at the moment looking quite unsightly especially round the margins where it is mostly contained. It does not seem to be affecting catches as noted above. Hopefully, it will clear as quickly as it appeared.
We still continue to stock on a regular basis as seen on our Facebook page
Boats are available for most days for full day or 4-hour sessions but to avoid disappointment please call 01506 671753 or book online in advance. Evening sessions have now commenced and anglers can fish from 4:30 pm until dusk.
