Menteith Report Opening Day24/03/07
Water Temp: 6.5C Secchi Disk Gateside: 2.5m
Fishing on the day was concentrated in the Lochend, Butts
and Heronry drifts (perhaps as a consequence of the east wind). The 31
boats bagged 140 fish for 343lbs, with 9 fish recorded as returned. Roughly
25% of the catch was over-wintered. The boat average catch of 4.5 fish
was not the biggest on record, perhaps due to the bright conditions and
east wind, but the mean weight was a very respectable 2 ½ lbs.
The Menteith overall weight (i.e. pike) record was broken just before the trout season opened by Lyn Baker from County Durham on 10th March. This fish is also (according to the archivists) the biggest pike ever caught by a Lady in the UK.
