Lake of Menteith 23rd October 2017
Water Temp at 6ft 10C C, Secci Disk Clarity Gateside Bay 2.4m

Some good catches on Saturday for some (best boat was Bruce Chisholm with 23). Somebody did well on a slow glass line in Lochend on a whitecat – can’t remember who! So Lochend and the Butts seemed to be the place but anglers will heading for the forbidden bay tomorrow as the rope will be taken off mid-morning on Tues 24th – allowing access to Gateside Bay. Sunday was a different day with strong north westerlies and low catches. Today Monday 23rd, 500 fish have been stocked and we have about 600 fish left to be stocked from the fish pens over the next couple of weeks at a rate depending on whether or not the cormorants decide to have a pen peckin party. The winter boat availability has been posted so, although we need a hard winter, if it turns out mild again at least anglers can blow away the cobwebs. Remember - this Sunday coming, and the Kirk and School day are 11am starts. Still the same position with the algae - Environmental Health warning remains in place although Robert Gordon University expert tests (15 samples, last sample taken on 20/10/17) have found no toxins.


Kirk and School Day 5th November. There are still boats available for this community fundraiser day for the kirk and School – all are very welcome, and all proceeds of the day go to the afore mentioned. Format is that boats go out 11am till 4pm ish, and there is a BBQ, soup, refreshments, raffle and a song or two from 4pm-ish till folk leave. Cost of a two person fishing boat is £45 (book through fishery). Family of 4 BBQ ticket £15. Adult ticket £7.50, child £4.50, under 3s free (purchase on the day).

Some good trout caught at the weekend but the best photo I saw from the weekend was Stuart Sutherland’s pike taken on his fritz black jack fly (below). Wullie Munn (further down) was pleased with this well conditioned pikey.
