The weed on Loch Loskin has been cut back while the water was at its current low level, the hired machine took the weed as low as possible before the first stocking and start of the brown trout season on 15th March. The club has put a lot of effort into the “Lochan” lately, with new boats, weed cutting and maintenance to the shed, with the external walkways in the process of being repaired with new timbers, so hopefully this will encourage members and visitors to fish this water as visits have been poor the last couple of years. There is excellent sport to be had here … providing you go and fish it !
Catch and Release …. an interesting article, give it a wee read !
A printable pdf file has been added giving directions/locations of all DDAC waters, the details can be given to emergency services when needed. It is advisable to print this and keep the copy on your person. Situations have arisen in the past where this would have saved confusion while relaying exact locations via mobile phone. This file is also on the “PDF Forms” tab.
Allan Miller got more than he bargained for yesterday he said …”This is one of two I got today while out with Bill Rankin, you will notice marks on its neck, while I was playing it a cormorant attacked it needless to say I won but I had to dispatch this fish. My other fish was safely returned. It just shows us the size of fish these cormorants can eat and how much damage they are doing to fish stocks.”
Bill Rankin was up on this bitterly cold day and landed this 5lb+ rainbow, well done !
Simon Mullins fished the reservoir today and took three nice fish, this one a beauty of approx 7lb, just proves there is still good sport to be had up the glen at this time of year.
