With the recent escape of 50,000 salmon from a fish farm near Campbeltown, there is no reason why these fish wouldn’t turn up in our rivers. Anyone catching one should kill it.
Member Bob Clark caught his personal best Rainbow Trout from Dunoon Reservoir today, weighed around the 7lb mark, and took an Okey Dokey lure … Well done Bob !
Member John Easdale also pulled out a Rainbow Trout of approximately 7lbs as well. He said “After many minutes of deliberation I decided to pack my rod, fire up my motorbike and buy a permit to fish the reservoir. I’m glad that I did because I landed this superbly fit 7lb fish. Unfortunately I had to take it because it swallowed the fly”
Well done John !
Member Bill Rankin found this floating in Loch Eck yesterday, he said “squeezy lemon brigade have been up to their old tricks again” ! By all means fish the loch but please retreive your junk and take it home, tackle discarded like this can be fatal to wildlife.
Member Bob Clark caught this freshly run sea-trout from the River Ruel this morning, safely returned, “waters perfect, well worth giving it a go” said Bob.

This was announced on the Daily Record website today, lets hope there is some truth in the article, roll on Tuesday to find out !
The new tab “Local Fly Patterns” is coming along nicely with a few members sending in their secret creations, but we could do with more members sending photos in, it keeps the website ticking over during the lockdown and adds a bit of colour to the pages, hopefully we will see restrictions eased before much longer and we can maybe get a line wet before the Summer ends …. fingers crossed !
Hope everyone is keeping safe and well
In these strange times the website is a bit short of news and photos to post up so we have started a new tab on the website titled “Local Fly Patterns” if anyone has been at the vice and would like to share their secrets that they use on DDAC waters with with the rest of the members and visitors to these pages, please take a photo of your creations and email them to us and we will gladly post them up for the world to see.
Hopefully this pandemic will be under control soon so we can all get back to normality
STAY SAFE AND WELL
