Linlithgow Loch Catch Report - 22/05/2023 – 28/05/2023

Successful lines for the week again were Floating, M/tip, S/tip. Flies taking the most fish were Buzzers / Muskins, Crunchers, black/green Lures, Damsels and Fabs. The Loch water is still clear at present.

There were 47 boats out over those days with 77 rods, 44 fish were kept, weighing 128¾ lbs, and 125 fish were returned. The change in the weather and atmospheric pressure made a detrimental change to the catches over the weekend.

Best catches for the week; Monday went to Owen Brogan and pal Sandy returned 7 trout. Tuesday’s successful anglers were Tam Easton keeping 2 for 6 Lbs, Mr Stewart returned 3, Mr Johnson returned 2 and George Mackintosh kept 2 fish weighing 6 Lbs and returned 2.
