The waters still on the low side but at least the boats are all floating.
Unusually low water conditions just now at Loch Tarsan, members are warned if fishing from the shoreline the mud is very soft and could prove dangerous, it is advised while these conditions prevail, not to fish alone.

Alan Miller had a good day on Tarsan, caught 10 with 7 safely returned, excellent quality trout the loch is producing this season !
Last Sunday we had a successful day removing the old rails from under the mooring lines at Loch Eck boathouse, we had problems on several occasions where the rails damaged and severed lines, problem solved… they are oot ! Also gravel was put into the big dip before the boatshed which always fills knee deep with water after heavy periods of rain. Thanks to all who came down to lend a hand, and also to Stephen Landsburgh who operated the machine for us.
