Lake of Menteith 26th Aug 2014
6ft Water Temperature 15C, Clarity (Secchi disc) 1.7m.

 

 

 

Other areas are continuing to hold fish and best bags have been coming from International Bay, Lochend, Malling shore and Sam’s Point – not necessarily the Cages! A lot to report this week so will make the most of photos. Autumnal mixing is taking place in the water column, circulating nutrients, and the water is still green in places on the windward shores when the wind is light – but the fishing has been excellent.

In the Stirling International Angling Festival over £800 was raised for a help the heroes charity event organized by Callum Fraser of Thornhill. Pictured right are top rods in the competition; Andy Everett (left) from the Army and Charlie Pride of the Scottish Police Force.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Winners of one of the oldest fishing trophies in existence, The Glasgow and District Cup, were Rainbow Warriors with this year’s team; Jock Cree (left) and Kenny Miller. Eleven 2 man teams from balloted clubs competed. The pair netted 17 trout (13 returned) for 37lbs.  Runners up were Dunrod (not Rowbank apparently).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 



 

 

 

 

 

 

Crawford Comrie (above left) from Crieff landed this 5lb 12oz brownie from a Dog Isle drift with an intermediate line and a black sedgehog. Octogenarian John Fleming (middle) took this 6 ½lb bow on a red holo cormorant in Gateside Bay.

In the first of the Scottish Club Semi-finals, the Lake fished exceedingly well with 54 anglers weighing in 106 fish for 252lbs and returning a further 351, giving a rod average of 8.5 fish. Top rod on the day was International angler Peter Auchterlonie (above right) with a probable major comp record of 31 fish. Peter was fishing a midge tip with a booby on the point and a couple of buzzers in International Bay. Peter’s Team Menteith Ospreys finished in first place with Change B and North Berwick runners up.
