Over the last month contact has been maintained with the Wild Fisheries Review Team in an effort to establish what, if any, legislative changes will occur this year in relation to the retention of salmon. As recently as Thursday 14 January the response from the Review Team remained that the relevant papers were with the minister and a final decision was still awaited.
Therefore until we hear to the contrary our rules and regulations remain the same as last year i.e. we will continue to operate a tag system and as per current national rules no salmon can be taken before 1 April.
Anglers on the Lomond system should rest assured that the committee will continue to fight your corner over this matter and as soon as there is an official announcement we will ensure that you are informed.
