Duncan McGillvray very kindly sent this in ….
The boats will not be coming out of the water as planned for this Sunday. We will post the new date on here later … thanks
Sightings of Osprey have been observed on both Dunoon Reservoir and at Loch Loskin recently so keep your eyes open for this … just hope he/she has purchased a permit at the paint shop and filled in the returns 🙂
Simon Mullins braved the snow and wind on Saturday and took a boat out on Loch Loskin, he said conditions were difficult but managed to land this one before the end. It looks remarkably like a seatrout, maybe somebody will prove us wrong ? 😉
The boats are still not in at Tarsan as yet, Andy Lancaster was unable to put moorings out due to the low water level and the mud, also the loch has not been stocked yet for the same reason. Loch Loskin has had walkways at shed fixed with new timbers and has been stocked with quality brownies all ready for the 15th. We will post up news on the situation at Tarsan when we know the details. Thanks for your patience.
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 !
All boats are now ready for use in Loch Loskin, thanks to all the members who came along to help.
The Tarsan and Loskin have been stocked today (Monday) with brown trout so everything is ready for action.
Please note : There are still only two boats in Loch Tarsan until the necessary repairs have been carried out, tell John at the paint shop which boat you require, standard or short shaft.
