Some tremendous fishing for the time of the year at the Lake. Was going to say for the end of the season, but we are staying open all winter now, so a change of mindset is required as well as a watchful eye on the weather and winter insulation. We will be opening a new portal for winter bookings – it is not quite ready yet – but will be in a few days. In winter it is best to know the weather before you book…
ANOTHER REMINDER THAT SUNDAYS NOW START AT THE SAME TIME AS THE OTHER DAYS I.E. GATES OPEN AT HE BACK OF 8AM. THIS IS A PERMANENT CHANGE.
The Lake fish are in a class of their own at the moment – averaging over 3lbs, due mainly to the fact that we grow our own fish and had to hold on to them for 2 months longer than normal due to the lockdown. Hopefully these big fish will be more cormorant resistant but if you do catch any that look mortally damaged please kill them and give them to staff rather than returning them to enrich the lake.
It was ropes off day in Gateside and it was good to see the bay heavily stocked with anglers.
Snakes seem to be very effective with this stamp of fish – fished with a fast retrieve. Catches recorded recently of 40 plus per boat.
Stu Bamforth got his first 20 on a fly fishing a bulkhead south of Dog Isle. Well done Stu.
Colin Riach was out again with his camera. think there is a week to go before prime autumnal colours – depending on the weather. Some great shots again Colin – particularly like the rainbow!!! The best sunsets are guaranteed for early to mid November when the sun sets behind Inchmahome.
