Lake of Menteith Report 7th April

Water temperature at 6ft 8C Clarity on Secchi disc 2m. The wind has settled this week and there has been a good hatch of fly’s so the swallows have been busy feeding. The best drifts have been Reedy Point to Hotel bay, the Road shore along to Katie’s Brae, The Butts down to Lochend and there was a lot of fish showing in Sandy bay but are looking at nothing the anglers throw at them. Anglers have been coming up in the water using Di 3 to Midge tip lines. The fly’s to fish include the Orange blob, white cat and yellow dancer, Hares Lug, Diawl Bach, Montana’s and a pinky lure!
