Simon Mullins caught something a little exotic today up at the reservoir, blue trout, caught on buzzer and safely returned for someone else to enjoy another day.
Residents are reporting on Facebook about an algal bloom on Dunoon Reservoir, it appears to be nothing more sinister than POLLEN ! …. So the water is safe to fish. Tight lines everyone 😉
Allan Miller got more than he bargained for yesterday he said …”This is one of two I got today while out with Bill Rankin, you will notice marks on its neck, while I was playing it a cormorant attacked it needless to say I won but I had to dispatch this fish. My other fish was safely returned. It just shows us the size of fish these cormorants can eat and how much damage they are doing to fish stocks.”
Bill Rankin was up on this bitterly cold day and landed this 5lb+ rainbow, well done !
Simon Mullins fished the reservoir today and took three nice fish, this one a beauty of approx 7lb, just proves there is still good sport to be had up the glen at this time of year.
Visitors have difficulty finding their way up to Dunoon Reservoir. Directions are as follows : Go to Nelson Street as indicated by the red arrow on the map, carry on up the hill to top of street, through the trees following the single track road, bearing in mind this area is used by numerous dog walkers and pedestrians at all times of day so please keep your speed to a minimum, follow the road up to the car park, please be observant of the allocated disabled parking areas. The reservoir is a comfortable 25 minute walk from the Paint Shop.
Colin Broon landed this cracker of a Rainbow Trout at the reservoir on 1st October, it weighed in at a whopping 9lb 2oz … well done Colin.
