DDAC recent activities.
With another season well underway and members and visitors catching fish and enjoying our waters, here is some of the work taking place behind the scenesat DDAC.
Regular stocking has been taking place at all of our still waters. A change of fish supplier was required due to the closure of Belhaven Fishery. Invicta Fishery has now taken over and have provided several loads of high-quality fish in an efficient and professional manner. Various club members regularly volunteer to assist with this crucial task.
A new multi visit, evening ticket has been introduced at the Reservoir for members that should allow anglers to have a go at short notice, when circumstances and conditions are favourable for them.
Work is continuing to improve and promote fishing at the River Ruel and has included a large additional pool becoming part of our our beat on a three-year lease, an audacious, grant funded operation to remove a particularly large and problematic dead tree from said pool, an informative evening tour of our beat by Ruel Convener, Bob Clark and Club members continuing to provide support with netting and monitoring of sea trout in partnership with the Argyll Fisheries Trust.
If you would like to get involved in any of these activities, please contact Club Secretary on 07814910795. Alternatively, you can contact any Committee member or email the Club at
