DDAC member Alan Miller caught these two chunky rainbow trout from the Dunoon Reservoir this week … just goes to show the quality of fish we are stocking this season … get up there !
Due to the recent high temperatures the June stocking for the reservoir has not gone ahead, our suppliers are not keen to deliver fish to us in these conditions as the fish will be highly stressed and possible infections could occur. We will keep members updated on this situation. Thanks for your patience.
DDAC member Steve Sorrell landed this hefty Rainbow Trout up at Dunoon Reservoir today, it weighed in at 9lb 12oz , just goes to show the quality of fish that are getting stocked just now …. well done Steve !
It has been brought to my attention that the swans have moved their nest from the dam outlet to the WEST ISLAND. The female swan has built a new nest and is sitting on eggs, barriers have been erected so as not to disturb the nest.
Fellow anglers please do not cross the barriers to fish, as this area is temporarily out of bounds from 1st May until the end of June until the eggs have hatched.
Sorry for the inconvenience,
Davy Landsburgh Club President.
