Fishery Report


Menteith Weekly Report 12th June

6ft Water Temp: 19C Secchi Disk Gateside: 2.5m

Very warm surface water temperatures with vastly improving clarity have been a feature of this weeks fishing. Dry fly tactics or sink tip line with diawl bachs (often green) and cormorants (sometimes blue) – when there is cloud cover have given the best catches. In bright conditions the anglers have tried faster sink lines to get down to the fish but often with not a lot of success – especially in a wind. However, there has been some very reasonable catches. For example, in the heat of the day of Saturday 10th June Thack AC landed 48 fish from 6 boats and the day before Edinburgh civil Service landed 35 fish from 4 boats. This picture of Quint Glen stocking fish was taken by David Mitchel. Best areas have been the Malling Shore (Roman Bay) and the Gap.
