Another nice Winter Rainbow at 3lb+ caught earlier in January, this time by member Bill Rankin … well done Bill ! … Just proof of what’s still in the Reservoir so get the thick socks inside the waders and get up there. Still good sport to be had up the Bishops Glen !
A fine pair of excellent quality Winter Rainbows caught up the Reservoir recently by club member Bob Clark, he caught them with a weighted Cats Whisker on a floating line with a long leader. Just goes to show the fish are in there for the taking …. Well done Bob !
Members are reminded that fishing permits for Dunoon Reservoir are at half price until the end of February (this applies to members only) Top quality fish are still up there and in good numbers, so make the most of the reduced price ….. and get fishing !

Get down to the paint shop and purchase your permit and choose your day
It has been noted that there is a big shortage of “Catch Returns” from members and visitors after fishing the Reservoir.
These slips are important, we need these figures to calculate the numbers of fish left in the water so we can adjust stocking numbers accordingly !
There is a post box for permit slips at the car park area, or if it suits better handed into Campbells Paint Shop in Argyll St. So if anyone has slips still that are in the pocket of their jacket or lying around the house please hand them in, or if its too far to travel please email the details of catch and stub number on the permit to .. firstname.lastname@example.org.
