Lake of Menteith
Report 19/04/16
6ft Water Temperature 7 C , Clarity (Secchi disc) 2.4m.

Water temperature and clarity has remained unchanged during the last week. The bright and breezy weather has stopped it being too easy. Anglers are saying the loch is well stocked but the surface feeders are tricky and it is easier to get them on an intermediate and a lure. Best areas have been Hotel Bay, the Road shore and Lochend.

In the first of the Scottish Angler’s National Championship Heats (today the 19th) the 18 boats caught 162 fish giving a rod average of 4.5 fish of average weight 1lb 14oz. The very bright and fairly breezy conditions made things difficult. Top bags pictured left to right were Kevin McCabe with 16 fish, 2nd placed was Scott Pozzi with 11 and 3rd was Rab Maxwell with 10 fish. Kevin started off at Lochend with Buzzers and caught here and on the Road shore with a washing line and then finished off the day pulling a booby. The top 18 qualified and the cut off weight was 6lbs 10.5oz.  

 

Below is the link to the consultation document that all anglers should read to have a say in how angling is run in Scotland. NB they are discussing introducing a rod license or angler levy and the cosultation is only open for a couple more weeks.
