2pm wed 4/9/19 River running very high, fast and dirty that combined with gale force wind in the area made it just about unfishable. Providing we dont get much more rain, Saturday and into the beginning of next week should provide ideal conditions and a good chance of sea trout or even a salmon. : Bob Clark (River Ruel Convener)
Visitor Owen Cook fished the reservoir at the weekend, and ended up a very happy angler, he said “the fish pictured was around the 6lb mark easily, great sport and great condition fish in Dunoon reservoir, caught 4 fish all safely returned that one being the biggest caught using a slow glass line with a orange blob two snatchers and a small lure on the point, I will definitely be back !” ….. your welcome anytime Owen 🙂
