Good sport at Kingennie

THE FISHING at Forbes of Kingennie has picked up when the sun has decided to shine with some good catches coming from all the ponds.

The second round of the Kingennie bank championship was held on the Burnside on Saturday which came down to a nail biting finish with only 8ozs separating the top three rods. Kyle Stewart was the winner with six fish for 12lbs 4ozs, narrowly beating Steven Green into second place with two fish for 12lbs with the largest, a huge fish for the Burnside weighing 9lb 4oz. Kyle’s winning method was damsels and hares ears on a Cortland blue and he will now fish in the final in October.

The next round will be on Saturday, May 4.

The Boathouse has become clear with the lack of rain but the fish are spreading out around the pond which is making the sight fishing very good.

The Bankside has also cleared and the fishing has improved with lots of fish to be seen on the surface taking dries.

The Woodside has continued to produce lots of fish with one of 3lbs 9ozs caught by Mr Webster being the biggest of the week.
