Report

 

23rd September 2008

6ft Water Temp: 14.5C, Clarity (secchi disk): 1.8m.

Difficult to pick out a best area at the moment – perhaps still the Butts to Lochend, up the road shore to Hotel Bay and Reedy Point and Gateside. We plan to allow access to all of Gateside Bay from the 21st October. If you want to guarantee a first crack in Gateside, you’ll have to fish the CHAS/Youth Fishing Charity Fundraiser which will be held on Tues 21st October. For more details and sponsor forms contact Quint (email: manager@menteith-fisheries.co.uk or 07710 433464) or Kevin (07866 743667). The last day of Trout Fishing at Menteith for 2008 will be the Port of Menteith Kirk and School Fishing and BBQ Day on 2nd November where all proceeds go to the aforementioned, permits can be reserved for this at the fishery as usual.

Ian Stewart of Bridge of Weir Angling Club caught this fine looking big resident behind Dog Isle during the semi-final of the Scottish Club Championships. The 9lb 13ouncer took a hopper fished on a midge tip line.
