There were 30 boats out in the past week with 48 rods, 22 fish were kept, weighing 63 lbs, and 102 fish were returned.

Anglers out during the week 27th – 3rd July had great results with the fish coming to dry flies, buzzers, cormorants, diawl bachs, and traditional wets. Most fish caught were sub-surface.

The best catches for the week came to Alan Tennant with Gavin Dunn returning 7 fish, Ali Fyvie out with George Mackintosh returned 11 on Tuesday. Mr Graham also had a very good day returning 7 – one weighing 8+ lbs taking his line around the boat a few times 😀. On Thursday Trevor Gibson and his partner returned 5 trout into the loch. Ian Dobbie and his partner returned 9 trout to the loch; Robin Lambert fishing solo returned 4 fish caught sub-surface on a red-cheeked cormorant – see his tube video. Friday’s anglers found it harder going with Ali Fyvie and Mr McIntyre returning 2 fish each.

On Saturday despite the hot searing sunshine, Bothwell & Blantyre AC had 4 anglers keeping 5 trout for 11 lbs while Freddie Paddon and Mark Lawton fishing solo returned 6 & 5 fish respectively.

Sunday saw 5 anglers out in the heat with Trevor Gibson and his partner returning 19 rainbows into the loch.
