Menteith Fishery



September 8th

6ft Water Temp: 15C, Clarity (secchi disk): 1.8m .

Hot Spots: South-east corner of the Lake; i.e. Tod hole, Lochend and Kate’s Brae – extending up the Shore Road to Shear Point and round to Sam’s Point, with plenty of fish in the cages also. Most catches have reported using a floater or sink tip with nymphs, crunchers and an attracter (i.e. a lure). The following few days will see a fair amount of research prior to the National Fly Fishing Championship on Saturday. We plan to have the stocking completed for the week by Tuesday 9th.
