Menteith Fishery



7th July 2008

6ft Water Temp: 16C, Clarity (secchi disk): 2.7m .  A lot of daphnia and pin head course fry - as well as the summer diptera – are much in evidence on the Lake.  Small green hoppers (#16) were working well at the Malling reed beds last night with one angler managing 12 fish with many more follows and pulls. When the conditions have suited, with the temperate water temperatures, dries or on the top methods are proving hard to beat. With the last of the Lakes SANA National Championship Heats completed, the Lake has received a big stocking (over 2000 fish since Friday) in recent days. We have quite a few boats spare due to a cancellation on Friday 11th July if anyone is interested.
