River Leven.

Another quiet week on the Leven but it goes without saying that this year’s weather has been a complete contrast to last year. Hopefully the rain gods will be good to us soon.

Some great work carried out last week by the bailiffs and volunteers. The bank on the Renton side of McKinnons has been cleared and manicured…

….and the path on the industrial estate side of McKinnons strimmed. This goes from the Polaroid Bridge down past McKinnons. Thanks to those involved.

Loch Lomond.

Still a few fish coming off the Loch, mainly around the islands and bottom end.

Peter McFarland contacted us with this report:

‘I recently took out two anglers from The Scottish AssociationĀ For Mental Health and decided to head north for a change to fish at Ardlui.’
‘One of the boys, David hooked this fine specimen. After quite a long fight, the fish wasĀ  landed, allowed to recover in the water for a few minutes and then safely returned. It weighed 12 lbs exactly and fell to a gold/orange rapala.’
Thanks for that Peter. There’s not much doubt that it’s a Lomond ferox.
