WINTER is definitely setting in at Forbes of Kingennie. There is a small amount of ice in the bankside but staff have been breaking it up and it is not causing any problems.
The Bankside has been fishing really well with small bloodworms fished under the indicator being the top method. Damsels and black and green lures have been the best lures.
The Burnside is clearing nicely after all the heavy rain and, buzzers have been the most effective method.
Again the indicator seems to be taking most of the fish but most flies have been taking fish as long as anglers fish deep.
Mr Gordon took 11 fish on the bloodworm in three hours fishing on Friday. The boathouse has been quite quiet this week due to maintenance work but those who ventured out had some great fishing. Mr Cook took three fish for 17lbs on hothead damsels as well as a brown of around 5lbs that was returned.
The boathouse is full but there are still spaces left on the Burnside for the compaction on December 29. Call the fishing shop on 01382 350777 to book a peg as there and not many spaces left.
