Fishery Report: 1st July to 7th July
Water temperature is 18C at 6ft and clarity has fallen to 1.9m. Sport is mainly in the middle or over the deeper areas (i.e. off the rednock shore, heronry, rookery, cages). The white cat has featured strongly on occasions – as had the beaded damsel and booby. On some days, small traditionals, snatchers, diawl bach have fooled the fish. Some very hot days have put the fish down – but recently, in the morning , after a night of calm there has been a lot of surface activity and some anglers are having very good sport with a dry fly and buzzers. With school holidays upon us and the national heats over for Menteith, boats are now easier to come by on the lake (with the exception of Monday and Wednesday Seniors Day Sessions and the weekends). Some fine looking on-grown fish in the bags.
