Lake Blog 28/3/16
6ft Water Temperature 7.5 C , Clarity (Secchi disc) 3m.

Calmer weather this week, coupled with a 3 degree increase in water temperature was coincidental with some good fishing – and even better when the cloud cover arrived after 3 days of sunshine. Top spots over the weekend was in the shallower water south of Kate’s brae over to the Butts but as yesterday the best catches have been in the sheltered north eastern drifts of Hotel bay and Reedy Point. Buzzers and pulling lures has produced the goods and there has been some very good bags with upwards of 40 fish to quite a few boats – with many (no exaggeration) 5lb plus overwintered specimens (as to be expected there was the odd boat which didn’t find the fish). Damsels, boobies and blobs have all been mentioned as well as black buzzers and dries.  One boat reported 5 fish of over 5lb from the dog isle area today. Two boats this week have reported they have had their best ever days on the Lake. 612 fish were stocked today amidst a good rise – all round the Lake. Below Gary Hamilton (left) and Jim Twaddle with examples of bigger fish. We correction from a previous report. Must have sand martins that were seen (in previous report) as it was too early for house martins. Ospreys are being sighted daily. Will enquire if our tagged individual is heading homeward.

Those that purchase permits at the Lake must now sign a declaration that they are aware that lifejackets must be worn and that those they are buying permits for are aware of this and have also read the angler risk assessment.
