Its been a better week for fishing with the weather cooling and helping fish to become a bit more active and rising in the water where they have been taking cover in cooler water temperatures with the heat.Conditions look like becoming much better as far as fishing is concerned.Some good fish still being caught but when released need to be coaxed till they recover as the water is warmer.Best flies have been Kate McLarens,yellow dancers,buzzers and ace of spades. Coming up on 7th July is the Open competition for all anglers,starting at 6pm and finishes at 1am.Anyone interested can put their names down at the fishery so as numbers can be sorted for the BBQ.Raffles and prizes and a good night as always for this annual event.Keep up to date on our website. Coarse loch Fishing has been really good with plenty of good bags being caught.Bream,roach,Ide,all being caught in numbers,mainly on Red maggot and 2 mm pellet on pole and also method feeders. Millbuies trout fishery Fishing has been steady with fish feeding well especially around the margins and fighting very well especially the Blues and browns(which all get returned.Now is the best time for millbuies and in the coming months for a relaxing days fishing.

Weather hasn't been good this week,but as I write its a good morning for fishing with fish rising all over the loch.Archie Miller has just had a good fish on his first cast and it is perfect conditions.Plenty of bigger fish moving around now so don't fish too light.

April 23, 2018
A really good week with good weather and fish all over the top.Dries and buzzers worked best for most anglers.Some good fish have been taking with plenty of bigger fish . 9lb 6ozs a beauty.Great to see that the season is now underway. On the coarse loch fishing is going well and Paul Murdoch had a great bag of fish and capped the week off really well with all anglers doing well.Red Maggot has been the best choice and fish coming to it well.It has to be emphazised this loch does not fish well when you overfeed so keep it to a minimum if you really want fish.Micro pellet that's 2mm has also done well for some.Remember these are wild fish not stockies.
