The gates are still open allowing a good flow. Not too many rods on the water but some anglers are enjoying great sport with spring fish.
On Saturday 10th May, Alan Hogan landed his first fish (11.5lbs) of the season at the Top Pool on the worm.
This fine specimen (13lbs) was caught on Monday 12th May at the Piles, on the fly, by Derek Hughes. With the assistance of Robert Curly it was netted and returned to the river. Well done Derek!
Chic McLean continues his successful season with another two fly caught springers at the Street Run, on 9th May (15lbs) and 12th May (14lbs). Both fish were released.
Finlay McLaren reports, while fishing the Estuary on Friday 9th May, landing an 8lb sea trout (above). An absolute bar of silver! Thanks for sharing with us Finlay.

Still quiet on the Loch, but with the gates open there will be fish going through.
Not many boats out midweek, but Wednesday 14th May was a good day for boatman Stuart McBean. He returned to Balloch with a spring salmon (13lbs) caught at the Boathouse on a trolled rapala.
Anglers out on the drift are having sport with sea trout to 3lbs. On Friday 10th May, this Balmaha angler’s rod was seen bending into a fish at the Ladies Point.
A trout of about 1.5lbs was netted and returned. Good sport nevertheless.
