Patrick Kelsall, previously a member with DDAC, until work took him out of the area, caught this beauty of a Rainbow at Dunoon Reservoir on Friday, he said, “Pulled this wee beauty out of the reservoir on Friday. Weighed in at 9.5 lbs. Cracking fish taken off the dam wall at last light”
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 !
