Kingennie fishing

THE RECENT weather has made fishing somewhat more difficult at Forbes of Kingennie with high pond levels and large amounts of silt discolouring several of the ponds, notably the Boathouse and Bankside.

This has reduced visibility and resulted in the main catching method being lures. However, prior to the rains there had been some reasonable catches taken on nymphs (Diawl Bachs, Okay Dokay and Pheasant Tail) especially on the Burnside.

The largest fish of the week was a beautifully marked rainbow of 11lbs 4ozs from the Boathouse taken by Mr Hammond. Several others over 6lbs were also landed.

In addition to these there was a substantial number of 3lbs-plus rainbows caught in the Bankside, again mainly on lures (black and green being the preferred colour combination). The high water levels have stirred up some big fish with noted specimens in the Bankside and Woodside any legal method pond.

Fresh stocks of rainbow trout were held back until levels dropped but these have now been added. They are solid fish in prime condition and should produce some excellent sport.

Clark, Dundee, caught and kept three weighing 7lbs on lures; R. Ferguson, Forfar, caught and kept one weighing 3lbs on buzzers; and G. Skelton, Arbroath, caught and kept one weighing 2lbs 8ozs on buzzers.

On catch and release were Ally Stewart, Dundee, 13 on lures; Dave Roy, Barnhill, 10 on buzzers; Frank Ferrier, Arbroath, seven on lures; Colin Cameron, Dundee, four on buzzers; K. Mackintosh, Montrose, four on buzzers; Les Gall, Dundee, four on lures; Dave Thoms, Carnoustie, five on a shipmans; Ally Stewart on his second visit 12 on lures; Gordon Skelton, Arbroath, on his second visit five on lures; S. Buchan, Montrose, two on buzzers; Mr Clark, Forfar, three on buzzers; and Craig Macpherson, Arbroath, two on a blob.
