Lake of Menteith 6th Nov 2018

Water Temperature : 7C, Clarity (Secchi disc)2.2m


This week’s first November stocking at the Lake (250 at 2.5lbs) gets scrutinised by Connor Shearer. We still have another pen of 450 more fish waiting to go in. Been a nice mild week so far with the bet of the catches in the eastern basin – fishing into the reeds.

We have had a great October for fishing which has made up for our over hot summer.

Another fantastic end to the main season with the Kirk and School Fundraiser BBQ which raised over £3000 (for the first time – before costs). Thanks to the generosity of the anglers and parents. All permit money is donated to the Kirk and School by the fishery. The School Council and children layed on a fantastic BBQ with music and song. There is no better way to mark the start of winter.

We do have boats available all winter for when the weather is mild (except weekends and over the festive period), and just turn up if the boat availability page says there are boats available and your decision is made late in the day without confirmation (we will get you out). All advice re booking will also appear on the boat availability page.

Should we make de-barbed hooks compulsory next year? check out our poll on facebook.
