Lake of Menteith 22nd October
6ft water temperature 10.5C, Clarity Gateside Bay 2.4m

 

With only 9 days to go of the 2013 season, stocking is continuing at the Lake at around 2/3rds of summer levels. 600 went in last week, and 600 are being put in this week. We will hopefully manage to squeeze in what we have left in the pens next week – but we never know exactly what we have till we go through the pen. The stockies are currently averaging around 3lbs and represent some of the best looking fish we have put in this year (they’ll look even better after a winter in the Lake), there are plenty of resident fish in the baskets as well. Unfortunately we are currently fully booked until Monday 28th October.

Best areas have been all over but Gateside , Lochend and the Butts probably deserve a special mention. Sink tip with a booby or two or lures (cat, humungus, Jim Milne of the Alloa Angling Centre has been doing well on Ally McCoists) are doing the trick. Buzzers are an option for the more educated bow.

 

The Menteith Young Persons Fishing Club “the Cormorants” had their final outing of the season. 12 year old Jamie Carruth from Blanefield finished off the season in good form by winning the club championship (aka the Tam Denholm Memorial Chase) and the Cormorants Shield. He is pictured left after being presented with the trophy by Menteith “Champion of Champion” John Buchanan.

Water Temperature stayed steady at 10.5C last week and clarity has also remained similar.
