Boats have now been put in at Loch Tarsan ready for the start of the 2019 season as the water level is back to normal. Only three boats are available just now as one is still getting repaired. A big thanks to all who came up to lend a hand at a very wet and blustery loch yesterday.
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.
This is the state of play at Loch Tarsan at the moment, preventing us from stocking and getting boats out on the moorings. We will keep members updated if there is a change in the water level situation, which is beyond our control.
Member Bill Rankin fished the evening rise up at Loch Tarsan a couple of days ago, he fished floating line with size 14 nymphs. It was a cool evening with a gentle breeze going down to a flat calm, said he took five fish all to this size (10″). Members are missing out not fishing at this time of the evening as there is good sport to be had.
Fifth Tarsan Competition 4th August
The loch was high enough for the last competition to take place. A dull and overcast day with a light wind, four members weighed in at the boathouse. The top rod on the day was Allan Miller with 10@ 6lb 11oz, well done Allan.
The winner of the P.J. Mackenzie Trophy was Lee Lindop with 28@ 17lb 5oz.
The Tarsan Cup went to Harry Lindop with a trout of 1lb
Well fished guys !
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 !
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.
