Member David Halliday caught a nice 2lb 4oz brownie up at Loch Tarsan yesterday, He said “Up early and finished at 10:30 having 6 to the net. Water levels were low, wind howling and couldn’t believe it when it started to rain”
A DDAC member captured this image yesterday up at Loch Tarsan, it shows two children a good bit out on the thin ice and a male adult on the bank, what you won’t see in this photo is that the adult was throwing large lumps of ice high in the air, and crashing down on the ice surface where his children were.
These photos show the water level at Loch Tarsan today, it’s up a bit from late March, at least the moorings are floating and not sitting high and dry in the mud. We hope to see a bit of action up here soon.
Bill Rankin and Allan Miller were out on Loch Tarsan on the opening day of 2020 season, these nice brownies were just some of the fish caught, all others were returned. The loch has not been stocked yet but as you can see there are still good fish to be caught.
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 ….
6 competitors fished with 4 weighing in. The weather – warm and bright, overcast with rain at the last hour of the competition. All anglers enjoyed their day out. Keith Mackenzie came to cast a line, his first of the year, good to see him back.
Winner: Lee Lindop who had 6 fish, next Harry Lindop 3 fish, followed by Ron Ganley 2 fish.
Lee Lindop is the overall winner of the Mackenzie Trophy and the trophy for the largest fish caught in the competition, Lee has the privilege of fishing the SANACC National 2020.
The annual match with Dunrod Angling Club was today 27th July, Dunrod won the day by 6 fish to 5, a great time was had by all who fished and the rain didn’t dampen their spirits. The Thompson Trophy was donated by a member of the Dunrod Club who was also a member of DDAC (for 67 years) sadly passed away recently, so it was fitting that it went back to them this year.
