VISITING anglers at Carlogie Dam Fishings last week included Jock Ewing, Aberdeen, who caught 13 and kept five weighing 18lbs on a W.S.W. His best was a rainbow of 7lbs 4ozs.
Davy Wood, Aberdeen, caught and kept three weighing 15lbs 8ozs on a W.S.W, his best a rainbow of 8lbs 8ozs; John Strake, Larbert, caught and kept four weighing 18lbs on lures, his best a rainbow of 7lbs 2ozs; Jim Tait, Forfar, caught 12 and kept five weighing 15lbs on lures, his best a 9lbs rainbow; Mr McDonald, Carnoustie, caught and kept two weighing 10lbs 8ozs on dries, his best a 5lbs rainbow; Scott Watson, Muirdrum, caught eight and kept two weighing 4lbs 12ozs on buzzers.
THE WARMER weather made all the difference last week at Forbes of Kingennie, with most fish falling to either dries or buzzers.
The Bankside has been on very good form. Most of the fish are holding in the deeper water but are still very keen to take. Buzzers have been the most consistent method with black and light olive being the favoured colours.
The dry fly fishing has been very good but the flies really do need to be small. Mr Barlow had a great morning’s sport, releasing 13 fish in just four hours fishing, all taken on small buzzer patterns.
The boathouse has been fishing well now that the colour has dropped out of the water. Lures continue to take most fish but smaller flies are taking more than their fair share. The oaky doaky has been very popular.
Mr Holmes took two fish for 12lbs on Friday morning, both on a small damsel.
The Burnside has been a bit more fussy with buzzers again being the preferred method but there has also been a lot of fish taken on fast sinking lines with big lures. Mr Crowther took 11 fish in just a couple of hours on a white poplar bear on a Di 5 on Tuesday morning.
The Woodside has been very good with green powerbait being the killer bait. All the other usual baits are working but for some reason green has been the bait.
