Visitor Owen Cook fished the reservoir at the weekend, and ended up a very happy angler, he said “the fish pictured was around the 6lb mark easily, great sport and great condition fish in Dunoon reservoir, caught 4 fish all safely returned that one being the biggest caught using a slow glass line with a orange blob two snatchers and a small lure on the point, I will definitely be back !” ….. your welcome anytime Owen 🙂
DDAC member Claude Lerevert caught this nice rainbow trout up at the reservoir recently, weight was around the 6lb mark, a cracker of a fish Claude!
Ronnie Ganley and David Halliday were up at Dunoon Reservoir today, Ronnie landed a “clonker” of a rainbow, around the 5lb mark, which was safely returned. The weather was very hot today with the temp in the car reading 35C 🙂
John Easdale had an excellent day up at Dunoon Reservoir recently and caught this nice plump rainbow trout, he said “it hit my Kate McLaren like a train” John also emphasised he limits his catch to that which is necessary as his family love fresh trout !
Well done John and thanks for the photographs .. tight lines !
Drove past Loch Tarsan today and this was the water level, a vast difference to March this year, couldn’t get another drop of water in the loch ! No problems with fishing the bank now, still six weeks of the brown trout season left to go ….
get up there and get fishing !
Bob Clark was up the River Ruel today and caught this nice wee sea trout, it’s his first this season and was around the 1lb mark, it took a size 12 stoats tail, the fish was safely returned to the river … well done Bob !
