Good News For a Change..
We are delighted to announce that after over 40 years of operation Scottish Water are finally considering a significant revision of river flows at the Leven barrage following a request by the Loch Lomond Angling Improvement Association.
A number of modelling scenarios have been created and while there will be further negotiations, the first positive result has been achieved, namely that the River Leven will, as a minimum, run bank to bank (weekend level) until at least the end of May.
Effectively this will lead to the first full successful spawning on the Leven since the early 1970’s and will be the equivalent of a major re-stocking exercise. It will also encourage fish into the river throughout the spring.
We will continue to negotiate with Scottish Water and SEPA in an effort to obtain the best possible outcome for our members and we will keep you updated on our progress.
