Lake of Menteith 6th April 2012
6ft Water Temperature 8.5C , Clarity (Secchi disc) 2.0m.
Angler’s should be aware that the catering van is non operational and teas and coffees are available free from inside the fishery hut. Two or three boats available this sunday.
A colder week saw many more regulars terminating hibernation and putting in an appearance at the Lake. Ospreys and Martins are now in abundance and most of the fishing activity has been in the eastern basin – and in Gateside Bay. A variety of methods have worked. Cormorants and blobs on a sink tip today and also on intermediate lines. The latter has perhaps been more popular in windy and or bright conditions, but it is horses for courses.
Yesterday the SPRA (Scots Police Recreational Assoc) weighed in 85 fish for 206lbs and returned 71, which gives you an idea of how the place is fishing. A picture (these stotters were taken by Colin Riach) tells a thousand words and its also a lot quicker at filling the page……..have a good weekend!
