Lake of Menteith 13th August

Secchi Disk Clarity 2.4m 6ft Water temperature 17C

It is the last night of the Baynes of Callander/Menteith Boat League on Wednesday 14th - and it is very tight at the top. Third placed George Whyte has decided not to go to Wembley for the Scotland England friendly so it is all to play for tomorrow night with Ken Oliver in the lead by one point. The fishery will put on a final night Barbie and refreshments and remember to bring last years trophies James! Looks like we will bring the boats in at 9.30 as tonight it was dark at that time. 

Last week of Evening Fishing at the Lake is this Friday!!

Post Heat Wave Bonanza
The Lake continues to cool down and there has been a fishing bonanza as the difficult to reach trout move back up in the water. Last week we had quite a few boats hitting the 50 mark. So far this week the best reported catches were in the mid thirties and came from the Malling shore through Gateside Bay and into the rookery.

 

Tuesday 13th: Some great bags today with catches per boat again in the mid thirties for some anglers and some “best ever fishing” reported by some of our regulars. Loads of breakages so we are now advising 10lb breaking strain to be deployed. The (at times) northerly wind kept the pens near the rope and there were quite a few 5-6lb fish in the bags. Colligan and Moran of Dailzel had 23 on buzzers (mainly), Anderson and Jackson (Edin Civil Service) weighed in 4 for 10lbs and returned another 35 (mainly dries – the daddy). McCabe and friend  reported over 20 fish on mainly buzzers. David Bell caught them on dries (daddies and humpies) and a cortland blue line with black booby and red cormorant when the sun came out. James Louden and son from Stirling had a great night with 11 fish for the boat. The small silver cormorant hyas also accounted for a lot of fish today.

 

Winner of the Scottish Military Fly Fishing Open was Grant Finlay from Faslane with 13(?) fish, pictured on right receiving the trophy from H.Henry (last years champion). Grant was fishing a midge tip line with cormorants and blobs From Dog Isle to the Portend Burn, moving to a fast glass when it got bright and finishing with dries (daddies). The 7 competing boats landed 43 fish for 124lbs and returned a further 32. Full report next week.
