We have recently been experiencing technical problems with our website causing disruption to webmail and the main site. The hosting service is working to resolve these issues and we hope to be up and running again very soon. In the meantime here’s a general update on the system.

Scottish Water tell us that this year the level of the Loch was the lowest for the month of May since the barrage was introduced. Thankfully the system has been topped up and there’s more rain forecast.

There have only been a couple of recent reports of salmon caught on the River Leven and a few lost fish but the bailiffs and members report seeing fish going through on the tide. On the Estuary our sea trout anglers are enjoying good catches, especially around the Cardross and Ardmore Point areas.

Loch anglers are having sport with at least seven springers reported recently at Voldac, the heaviest fish at 16lbs. Most catches made at the southern end of the Loch but a good fish was dropped last week up at the ‘Lucky Chuckie’ Still plenty sea trout around the shores and Islands. Few boats out but perhaps news of fish at Voldac will get more anglers afloat.

The Leven clean up will take place this Saturday/Sunday. Meeting at Bonhill Bridge at 0900 both days. Refreshments provided. Everyone more than welcome.

Our web reporter is taking a break for the next fortnight but keep sending in your reports and photos to reports@lochlomondangling.com and he’ll catch up on return.
