Menteith Report

3rd April


6ft Water Temp: 10C Secchi Disk Gateside: 2.5m
The sunny spell has heated the water up this week but the north east wind is keeping the jackets on just now. There has been a good hatch of sedges and buzzers in the sheltered corners.
The places that have been holding the fish this week are; Cage bay, Sandy bay, Otter bay, Katie’s Brae and the Hotel bay.
Some of the Flies doing the business include yellow Dancer, Red headed Damsel, Booby cat, Kate McLaren, Daiwl Bachs and a small Cats whisker.
The fish are not too deep so using anything from a sink tip line to a Di3 should be enough.
