The Lake has been fishing well in all areas and especially at Lochend, Malling Shore and Gateside.

Tactics continue to be surface (floater or sink tip) with dries or a booby and buzzer/cormorant/snatcher combination fished slowly. Lures (dancer/whitecat) have performed well also but pulled in faster.

Notable results: Scotsman AC 3 boats 16 fish 47lbs 2 rtd, Edin Walton AC 9 boats 30 fish 86lbs plus 4rtd, Falkirk Municipal 6 boats 31 trout 95lbs, Falkirk Fly Dressers 6 boats 39fish 121lbs, Edin Civil Service 7 boats 32 fish 89lbs plus 5rtd, CIBA 5 boats 28 fish 84lbs plus 7 rtd, SSEB 9 boats 44 trout 129lbs, Trout Anglers 6 boats 26 fish 80lbs plus 5 rtd, SPRA 12 boats 52 fish 15lbs plus 40 rtd.

With the season fast drawing to a close we will be stocking up to the last week (and beyond depending on numbers) with some fine trout – and for a change we have BOATS AVAILABLE next week (see boat availability on the website).
