Water level is still depressingly low on the loch as the video shows. So please take care when bank fishing as the mud is still soft and dangerous.
There was a very poor turnout for the first competition of the 2019 season with only four anglers competing and only two anglers weighing in at 6 pm.
Lee Lindop was the top rod with four fish for 2lbs 2oz and the heaviest fish of 10 1/2 ozs. Second was Allan Miller with one fish for 8oz. Conditions were mixed starting off with a flat calm followed by a light breeze and showers. Plenty of fish showing to start off then they seemed to go down.
The 1st Tarsan competition is on this Saturday as scheduled, but members must take care when walking the banks and especially when wading, as the silt is soft and holds hidden pockets that you can sink up to the knees. Start at 12 noon at the boat house.
Dear Members. The Tarsan will not be stocked this coming week as the water is extremely low and as you can see the boats are high and dry in the mud. If fishing from the bank, please be extremely careful as the banks are very muddy and soft. This may affect the 1st Tarsan Competition, will let members know nearer the time.
Simon Mullins braved the snow and wind on Saturday and took a boat out on Loch Loskin, he said conditions were difficult but managed to land this one before the end. It looks remarkably like a seatrout, maybe somebody will prove us wrong ? 😉
