Lake of Menteith 3rd September
Secchi Disk Clarity 2.3m;  6ft Water temperature 15C

A windy few days has resulted in most of the fishing being concentrated in the sheltered yet productive Gateside Bay. Dries (daddies etc) or boobies (two or a single boob plus cormorant) on sink tip to DI3 lines have been the alternative.


In the second of the Club Championship Semi-finals Change B were the top team (Jim Crawford, Carl Nixon and Wullie Leach) with 33 fishwith. 2nd placed team were Newtonmearns with 32 fish (John Buchanan, Kenny Hunter and Billy Dewar – pictured left, apologies change B!). In third place were Alba Orvis “B” with 30 trout. Top bag on the day was John Buchanan (17 trout) who was in Gateside with a couple of boobies on a DI3. The sixty anglers caught 416 trout of which 117 were weighed in for 308lbs, giving an average weight of  2lbs 10oz and a total estimated catch weight of 1095lbs. Full results at

Quite a few personal bests this week. Keith Imisson (left) has been fishing the Lake since 1984 and had his two best trout in all these years on the one day last week (7lb 13 and 6lb 13). The bigger troot took an orange shipman’s buzzer in Gateside (he got the other one on a cats whisker booby and intermediate line). Another long time regular Tom McBride (below) of Good Companions AC, also managed a P.B. of 8lbs 12oz on a blue cormorant – from the reeds in Gateside. As did Malcolm Cardwell-Smith of Stirling Rotary with one of 5lbs 11oz.
