Lake of Menteith 30th October
6ft Water Temperature  7.0C, Clarity (Secchi disc) 2.3m .


We ended up stocking around 950 3lb fish in the last full week of fishing at the Lake and we will see how the remaining 350 do in the pens with regard to cormorant attack and release if need be. It has been a great end to the season from a stocking and fish quality point of view and bodes well for overwintered fish in the spring. Work on the hut extension is starting and there are a lot of stats to collate for the year as well as preparing for the Kirk and School Day. More on these next week. Areas reported fishing have been just about anywhere. Lochend, Gatside, shear Point, Hotel Bay, Reedy Point and the Heronry have all see n good catches.

2012 Scottish Youth Champion

The Scottish Youth Fly Fishing Championship was held last weekend at the Lake and the new Youth Champ is James Hek from Troon. James came out top on points over the two days and was fishing a sink tip, candy booby and black and gold diawl bach. In second place was Calum Tait and third placed was Calum Hardie. On Sunday James Fairlie was top bag with 13 fish but was 6th over all in the championship. James Fairlie and Calum Hardie will be too old to fish for the team in Wales next year. The 15 young anglers making up the squad will be James Hek, Calum Tait, Jack Hamilton, Angus Barbour, Michael Craig, Calum Robertson, Jamie Sutherland, Andrew Kennedy, Jamie Carruther (sp), Calum Steven, Jack Middleton, Calum Clarke, Sean Queen, Martin Runcie and Robbie Gibson. The rod average for Saturday was 4.2 and Sunday 2 (fishing time on Sunday was half that of Saturday). 

 

 

 

Euan Miller was out with Dougie Loughridge fly fishing for pike last week and landed this beauty. Billy Foster liked the look of this fine rainbow and if anyone seriously fancies this number plate – contact Bill on 07976740375.
