Menteith Report

25th June


6ft Water Temp: 16C Secchi Disk Gateside: 1.9m
The big news this week was the amount raised by Wateraid who held their corporate fishing event at the Lake on Friday 22nd June. The organiser Robin Lambert of Scottish Water landed some big corporate sponsers for the event - Future Environmental Services, Scottish Water Contracting, Orange Business Services, MWH Global, Farrer Consulting and Waven Plastics. The fantastic sum could not have been achieved without the help also of the smaller sponsors including those companies who sent teams to the event and of course the enormous amount of time spent by Robin Lambert of Scottish Water who organised the event and collected the sponsorship. The event was won by Change Homes Ltd. Pictured above with Managing Director Kevin McCabe (on left) are Jock Kettles, James Litster and Derek Marklow. Change caught 24 fish for 51lbs 7oz, 2nd were Anglian Water with 5 fish for 13lbs 6oz and 3rd were AESOps Ltd with 5 fish for 8lbs 15oz. Top Individuals were Jock Kettles with 6 fish for 13lbs 2oz, 2nd was Chris Evans of Anglian Water and 3rd Kevin McCabe with 6 fish. The 64 competitors caught 53 fish for 150lbs.

Water temperature has gradually picked up this week to finish at 16C. Light to strong easterly winds have prevailed. Top spots have been Lochend, Road Shore/Shear Point, Rookery and Roman Bay. The fish have been close to the surface and anglers have favoured buzzers and lures.
