Simon Mullins fished Dunoon Reservoir yesterday, not expecting much as the water was well coloured after the recent rainfall, second cast he connected with this beauty of 9-10 lbs, the fish was safely returned. ……. Well done Simon !
Mike and Lee Lindop hold a couple of nice Rainbows at 8-9 lbs each, also Simon Mullins with his personal best of 9lb from the Reservoir.
David Halliday also caught a nice fish which was safely returned
Two new stiles and a bridge have been built to improve access to the upper reach of the association water. Thanks to Stevie Cooper who did most of the work, Ronnie McVicker, the farmer who carted the wood down to the river on his quad bike, Davy Landsburgh and Russell Buchanan for donating the wood and Glendaruel Wind-farm trust for the funding.

Lee Lindop came across this old club badge recently, does anyone know if it’s a Dunoon Club one, and if so what year ?
Lee Lindop said “A good evening session at Loch Loskin managed some nice wild brown trout got a bit chilly at the end looks like a Muscovy duck has set up home at the boat house, not sure where he’s from !”
Patrick Kelsall, previously a member with DDAC, until work took him out of the area, caught this beauty of a Rainbow at Dunoon Reservoir on Friday, he said, “Pulled this wee beauty out of the reservoir on Friday. Weighed in at 9.5 lbs. Cracking fish taken off the dam wall at last light”
An email received today from a very pleased angler
Had the pleasure of a lovely days fishing on the reservoir last Thursday
Many thanks for the beautiful setting and a well stocked water…….at very reasonable rates. Should anyone complain of the fees, just point them to the small waters down south…….over £50 for a 2 or 3 fish ticket and no catch and return, largely down to the higher water temperatures. The C+R was most appreciated. Being on holiday was pointless catching and killing fish I was unable to freeze and unlikely to eat
Thanks also to the gent in the paint shop. Both helpful and friendly
