This article highlights the precarious state of our wild salmon and sea trout stocks in Scotland. It is essential that responsible anglers continue to carefully return fish and help look after our club rivers and waters.
A new 10″ minimum fish size is now in effect for all our waters and competitions.
Remember only two visits per week on the Loskin. (See club manual)
Boats sitting high and dry and unusable at Tarsan yesterday 😢
A fly reel will be handed into the Paint Shop tomorrow morning, it was passed into “Doon the Watter” as the Paint Shop was closed. It was found by a visitor to Loch Loskin, if anyone has lost one, that’s where it will be. Thanks to Diane Fletcher for her help.
Dear members and visitors
We are having complaints from the public about discarded fishing line – see photo. I would hope that no member of the Club would leave any line lying around. Line like this is detrimental to the safety of wildlife. If you see any line lying around, please pick up, take home and discard in a safe way. Davy
Lee Lindop came across this old club badge recently, does anyone know if it’s a Dunoon Club one, and if so what year ?
An email received today from a very pleased angler
Had the pleasure of a lovely days fishing on the reservoir last Thursday
Many thanks for the beautiful setting and a well stocked water…….at very reasonable rates. Should anyone complain of the fees, just point them to the small waters down south…….over £50 for a 2 or 3 fish ticket and no catch and return, largely down to the higher water temperatures. The C+R was most appreciated. Being on holiday was pointless catching and killing fish I was unable to freeze and unlikely to eat
Thanks also to the gent in the paint shop. Both helpful and friendly
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.
