Lake of Menteith Weekly Summary 12th July 2011
Water Temperature – 17.5C, Clarity (Secchi disc)2.3m.

Changeable weather and the end of our wee heat wave has sent the mercury back down a little and we are still waiting for our usual period of great clarity associated with mid summer. Best areas have been open water, Gateside and latterly tight into the Malling shore. Dries and standard booby or blob or both combined with diawl bach type tactics have been working on a sink tip or intermediate line. Pinhead fry are now present in abundance. Swallows are lining up on the telephone wires. The fishery will be stocked on Wednesday and Friday this week. Stock fish size 2.5 to 3lbs. Ian Wallace of Kilbirnie caught this resident on tequila blob (or booby) on Sunday 10th. Ian also weighed and returned a 27lb 30z pike on the same fly during the Lexus competition.
