THE WEATHER might not be summery at Forbes of Kingennie but it hasn’t affected the fishing one bit. The good flush of water last week has really helped the ponds back to full height and the fishing has benefited.

The boathouse has been holding a bit of colour but the fish have been quite active and again most lures have been taking fish with cat’s whiskers or yellow dancers being the most popular at the moment. The best fish this week was taken by Mr Norrie with an 8lbs 13ozs rainbow taken on an orange blob.

The Burnside has also been a bit cultured and lures have been the best method on intermediate lines with a cats whisker or a damsel taking most of the fish. There are still plenty of fish coming out on the dry as well when the weather has suited.

The Bankside has probably been fishing the best with lots of fish coming out to most methods. Buzzers and nymphs fished on the washing line have been the best. Damsels and lures are still taking fish but they seem to be shying away and just nipping at the flies. Again dries are catching a lot of fish when the weather has been right.

The Woodside pool has been fishing well with powerbait still proving to be the best bait. Mr Bradley had a great day with his two sons on Sunday taking six fish for 11lbs with the biggest being a 3lbs 12ozs monster caught on green powerbait.
