DDAC member Claude Lerevert caught this nice rainbow trout up at the reservoir recently, weight was around the 6lb mark, a cracker of a fish Claude!
John Easdale had an excellent day up at Dunoon Reservoir recently and caught this nice plump rainbow trout, he said “it hit my Kate McLaren like a train” John also emphasised he limits his catch to that which is necessary as his family love fresh trout !
Well done John and thanks for the photographs .. tight lines !
There was a good turn out today to help with the monthly stocking at Dunoon Reservoir, another load of quality fish put in the water with plenty over the 4 lbs mark. Thanks to all the lads who turned up to help.
Please remember you need a permit to fish here at all times, all our waters are patrolled regularly, poaching will not be tolerated, and persons doing so will be reported to police.
Sightings of Osprey have been observed on both Dunoon Reservoir and at Loch Loskin recently so keep your eyes open for this … just hope he/she has purchased a permit at the paint shop and filled in the returns 🙂
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.
