Hats off to those members that turned out for the Over 50’s Competition at Loch Tarsan! On a day that again could have passed as Autumn a handful of anglers were still prepared to fish, despite an increasingly strong westerly that crested the water with white horses and drove at times very heavy rain into their faces. Two anglers chose to use a boat and although they required to come in early due to deteriorating conditions the winning bag was their reward for braving the waves. Well done to Bill Rankin who won the day returning 3 lovely fish including the biggest fish also.
Results were as follows:
No. of fish. Total Weight. Biggest fish.
Bill Rankin. 3. 3lbs10.7oz. 1lbs8.3oz.
Colin Brown. 2. 2lbs8.6oz. 1lbs7.5oz.
Keith Mackenzie. 2. 2lbs3.7oz. 1lbs2oz.
D.F.MacGillivray. 2. 2lbs0.1oz. 1lbs4oz.
Passed by Tarsan today (9th) and all boats were high and dry again 🙄 .. incase anybody was planning a trip, that’s the situation at present.
The Reservoir road is temporarily closed due to a landslip half way up the road. The Council are busy digging into the hillside to re-route the road and, at this moment, there is no time estimate for the work to be completed.
Members should go along Kilbride Road and when you come to the concrete ramp where Storie’s old yard used to be, drive up for just under half a mile and you will come to a car park. Park there and walk through the woods and you will come out at the dam wall.
Sorry for the inconvenience. I will up-date the web-site as soon as I have more information.
DDAC member Bob Clark fished Loch Tarsan on Monday evening (28th May) and said its probably the lowest he’s seen the water level there, he still managed a pair of plump brownies though … nice one Bob !
All boats are now ready for use in Loch Loskin, thanks to all the members who came along to help.
The Tarsan and Loskin have been stocked today (Monday) with brown trout so everything is ready for action.
Please note : There are still only two boats in Loch Tarsan until the necessary repairs have been carried out, tell John at the paint shop which boat you require, standard or short shaft.
Planning a fishing trip in Dunoon ? …. Then here’s the place to stay.
Received a nice Thank You card from a guest who attended the recent Annual Dinner at the Argyll Hotel, we thought it would be nice to post it up.
Bill Rankin was in good form today, a specimen banana skin taken on the top dropper, he wouldn’t comment if it was returned or taken home for his dinner !
It can be quite confusing telling the difference between a sea trout and a salmon, click on the PDF files below to learn how.
Lee Lindop with the heaviest fish of the outing to the Lake of Menteith, a perfect condition rainbow trout which weighed 6lb’s.
