A very wet visit to Loch Eck on Tuesday 31st October produced this fine Sea Trout for Bill Rankin who was accompanied by Allan Miller on the last outing of 2017.

Another cracking sea trout for Allan Miller taken from Loch Eck about the 3lb mark and safely returned .. well done Allan 👍

The Loch Eck Competition starts this Saturday 7th and finishes Saturday 14th. Remember all salmon must be measured and/or photographed if possible and quickly returned to the water. No Sunday fishing ! Book your boat and day at Campbell’s paint shop. Tight Lines.
Last Sunday we had a successful day removing the old rails from under the mooring lines at Loch Eck boathouse, we had problems on several occasions where the rails damaged and severed lines, problem solved… they are oot ! Also gravel was put into the big dip before the boatshed which always fills knee deep with water after heavy periods of rain. Thanks to all who came down to lend a hand, and also to Stephen Landsburgh who operated the machine for us.
The last sea-trout caught on Loch Eck for 2016 was around the 2lb 4oz mark and safely returned after a quick photo, the lucky angler says there are plenty more left in the loch for next season.
