Photo taken this morning 19th July, water still exceptionally low at the loch, one boat high and dry at usual moorings, the other two are afloat “just” at the other mooring lines just a few yards down the bank. Those brave enough to bank fish please be careful as the mud is soft, and it is advisable not to fish alone !
DDAC member Alan Miller caught these two chunky rainbow trout from the Dunoon Reservoir this week … just goes to show the quality of fish we are stocking this season … get up there !
Over fifty’s, Wednesday 4 July 2018, luckily all members were fishing from boats as the loch was even lower than the last competition. After a very hot day eight members weighed in at 4pm, the winner was Keith Mackenzie with two fish at 12 ozs and Bill Duff had the heaviest fish weighing 12 ozs.
Fourth Tarsan competition 23rd June 2018, another warm day and the loch was low. Five members weighed in at 6pm at the boat house, all five caught fish. The top rod was Allan Miller with four fish at 2lbs 9 ozs.
Massan Diary June
If any of our members are unfamiliar with the pool locations on the Massan, here are a few pictures of the laybys that I have strimmed and marked.
Approach the river more or less at right angles to the marker posts to find them, these historicaly have fished well in good water conditions,but they are only a starting point.
Explore the river for yourself and you may be surprised to discover that one of the many pools, runs and side eddies, often no bigger than your dining table, will yield a fish or two!
The Corner Pool
The Falls Pool
The Massey Buidh
The Fernery Pool
The Pipers Pool
The Eas an Buidh
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.
