Fishery Report

 

Report 19th September

6ft Water Temp: 16.5C Secchi Disk Gateside: 3.2m

The Lake continues to produce some fine baskets and as the temperature drops fish are increasingly turning up in the shallower drifts. Hot spots in the previous seven days have been The Road shore, Lochend, Kates Brae, Gateside Bay and Roman Bay. Sink tip has again been the most popular line either with a washing line set up or lure on the tail and smaller flies further up – such as diawl bachs and cormorants.

Seona Glen (9) of the Port, captured her first trout on the fly (white cat), thanks to some tuition from youth Coach Alisdair Mair.

Tam Ward (below) displays another big fish (7lbs 13oz) from season 2006.
