Way on down at the Lake 16/07/19

Lake of Menteith 16th July 2019

Water Temp at 6ft 21C Secchi Disk Clarity Gateside Bay 2.6m

The warm weather (see water temp) has sent the fish (not necessarily the pike) deep so pack your fast sinkers. Best areas of recent have been the Malling shore, The Gap and Gateside Bay. Gary Johnson and John Slaven sent in these fine photos. At these temperatures we have an advisory note to limit catch and release in the interests of fish welfare. The Scottish versus English Select match tomorrow will be fished to 10 fish catch and release and record the time of your last fish caught. Temperatures are thankfully forecast to drop over the next few days…..
