A very poor turn out, only three members came to the weigh in and nine fish were weighed in.
After the long dry spell there was enough water for the competition to go ahead, there was very little wind which meant the midges were in their element.
The winner of the Moth competition was Allan Miller with four trout at 2lbs 3ozs.
The next Tarsan competition will be Saturday, 23rd June 2018.
Due to the recent high temperatures the June stocking for the reservoir has not gone ahead, our suppliers are not keen to deliver fish to us in these conditions as the fish will be highly stressed and possible infections could occur. We will keep members updated on this situation. Thanks for your patience.
DDAC member Bob Clark fished Loch Tarsan on Monday evening (28th May) and said its probably the lowest he’s seen the water level there, he still managed a pair of plump brownies though … nice one Bob !
3rd Tarsan Competition 26/05/2018
The loch was very low making wading quite difficult, it was a very sunny and hot day with a gusting wind which made casting difficult. Six members attended the weigh in at the boat house and the top rod was, Harry Lindop with 9 fish at 6lbs 5ozs. In second place was Allan Miller with 6 fish at 4lbs 6ozs.
The next Tarsan Competition is the Tarsan Moth Competition, 7pm – 11pm on Friday, 15th June 2018.
The second day of the Tarsan Competition took place on May 5th. Lee Lindop was first with 7 fish for 3lb 1oz. Harry Lindop and Ron Ganley came second equal with 3 fish each for a total of 3lb 1oz.
On Saturday 12 May, Dunoon and District Angling Club had their first outing of the season to the Lake of Menteith. The weather was a bit bright for the fishing but 11 members had an enjoyable day. Davy Landsburgh, President of DDAC presented Andy Mallaney with a bottle of whisky for the Best Basket with 3 rainbow trout weighing a total of 8 lbs and also a half bottle of whisky to Ron Ganley who had the heaviest rainbow trout weighing 3 lb 10 oz.
DDAC member Steve Sorrell landed this hefty Rainbow Trout up at Dunoon Reservoir today, it weighed in at 9lb 12oz , just goes to show the quality of fish that are getting stocked just now …. well done Steve !
