Lee Lindop came across this old club badge recently, does anyone know if it’s a Dunoon Club one, and if so what year ?
Lee Lindop said “A good evening session at Loch Loskin managed some nice wild brown trout got a bit chilly at the end looks like a Muscovy duck has set up home at the boat house, not sure where he’s from !”
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”
An email received today from a very pleased angler
Had the pleasure of a lovely days fishing on the reservoir last Thursday
Many thanks for the beautiful setting and a well stocked water…….at very reasonable rates. Should anyone complain of the fees, just point them to the small waters down south…….over £50 for a 2 or 3 fish ticket and no catch and return, largely down to the higher water temperatures. The C+R was most appreciated. Being on holiday was pointless catching and killing fish I was unable to freeze and unlikely to eat
Thanks also to the gent in the paint shop. Both helpful and friendly
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.
With the recent escape of 50,000 salmon from a fish farm near Campbeltown, there is no reason why these fish wouldn’t turn up in our rivers. Anyone catching one should kill it.
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 !
Member David Halliday with his personal best rainbow of 6lb+ at Dunoon Reservoir today using a Yellow Dancer lure … well done David nice fish 😉
Member Bill Rankin found this floating in Loch Eck yesterday, he said “squeezy lemon brigade have been up to their old tricks again” ! By all means fish the loch but please retreive your junk and take it home, tackle discarded like this can be fatal to wildlife.
Convener Bob Clark took this short video of the River Ruel in full spate, he said “Once the river drops a bit and the water clears it should be perfect”
