5. SWANSWATER (Stirling)

Despite it being another cold week, the fishing remained pretty good.   Water temperature started the week at 2oC but rose to 5.5oC by Saturday.   At the start of the week the fish were generally deep and mainly in the main area of Swanswater.   As the week went on they came up in the water and some were to be found in the top 2 feet of the water.  Early in the week, an intermediate line fished with lures or Buzzers was the best tactic, with floating or intermediate with nymphs or wet flies doing well towards the weekend.   Favourite patterns included Cat’s Whisker, Cut-throat Cat, Dancer, Ace of Spades, Bibio, Kate McLaren, Damsel, Snatcher and Spider. The biggest fish landed this week was a superb 5lb 4oz Gold taken by Nan Morrison on her first outing after a number of weeks forced absence due to the weather. The Fishery is now open from 8.00am to 7.00pm every day.

) It was a cold wet day for the start of the fishing season but the Goth FFC started theirs with a great outing on Saturday by catching 44 fish for 138lbs 12oz and the winner was Dean Caulder with 4 fish for 14lbs 2oz with Steven Leyden taking the runner up spot with 4 fish for 14lbs. Also doing well was B Gribble from Edinburgh with 4 fish weighing 11lbs 4oz on Black 7 green lures, Andy Young, Furnace on 2 visits had 8 fish for 24lbs on an Ally, Colin Clement, Tyndrum, 4 fish for 14lbs - best 6lbs on the Okey Dokey and Jim Linton from Moodiesburn used a Goldie to take 4 for 12lbs 8oz.

5. SWANSWATER (Stirling)

The start of the week saw a very quiet time at Swanswater with few anglers venturing out in the snowy conditions which led to thick slush settling on the surface of the pond. During the rest of the week there was slightly restricted fishing due to ice forming as the water temperatures dropped to 1 degree, the lowest for some time. Fish were all deep in the water with most being caught around 5 to 6 feet down and deeper at times. On Thursday Donald McRae from Isle of Skye found a thin sliver of clear water in the ice behind the island and was rewarded with 4 fish in just over 30 minutes, taken on an Ace of Spades. The water temperature started to rise as the weather improved, though the bright sun on Friday meant fishing was quite tricky. Saturday was a cold and rainy day but due to the rise in water temperature the fishing was really good, with the fish well spread out around Swanswater and not quite so deep, with the Golds being seen close to the surface. Heather Johnson won the Troutmasters fish off on Saturday and will represent Swanswater in the final. The majority of fish are still being taken on the usual lures, including Dancer, Cats and Damsel with a few being taken on wet flies and Diawl Bach. Thursday will see the start of the start of the Brown Trout season, and as usual a large number of Browns will be stocked for the big day. This year it will also coincide with a stocking of our latest batch of Tiger Trout.
Donald McRae, Isle of Skye, 5 for 15lb 8oz including a Blue plus 2 C&R in 2 visits

2. FORBES OF KINGENNIE (Broughty Ferry)

Despite some horrific Arctic weather, the Kingennie resort has been open for fishing on most days. However, angling numbers have naturally been well down. Top rod on the Boathouse Pool was Mr. Hogg who returned a very creditable 10 fish and James Smith found a Hare’s Ear worked well, releasing four fish in a short session. Scott Watson likewise had a short outing on the Burnside Pool and managed three fish on Buzzers, the largest being a fine rainbow estimated at 10lbs. Dave Whitecross also returned three in a morning session, taken on Yellow Dancer whilst Nick Soave took three rainbows for a total of 6lbs 8oz. Frank Sherriff again did well on the Bankside Pool returning three fish with the best being a superb rainbow of 9lbs 02ozs. The any legal method pool, the Woodside, received minimal attention but Mr. Snowden caught a couple of rainbows that tipped the scales at 5lbs. Float fished Powerbait or Mepps type spinners are producing the best results.

Although conditions are still on the rough side our fishery is open and we look forward to seeing you.

With the Beast from the East hitting hard midweek the Fishery was closed from Wednesday to Saturday.   After a lot of hard work clearing the platforms and car park of lying and drifted snow saw the fishery re-opening on Sunday and hope to stay open as the aerators should cope with any sub-zero temperatures the remaining winter has to throw at us. With very few anglers venturing out there is not much to report although some of those who fished did very well with last Monday being a the best day.   The fish were generally deep in the water due to the very low temperature and were taking small lures or nymphs.  
Amongst those who braved the weather was Robert Smith from Falkirk with 2 for 9lb 8oz including a 5lb Rainbow, plus 2 C&R, Billy Allison, Whitburn, 5 for 12lb from the Meadow Pond including 2 Blues, Derek Russell, Bathgate, 5 for 12lb 8oz from the Meadow Pond, including a Blue and a Gold, plus 3 Golds C&R and Alec Knox, Glasgow, 3 for 11lb 4oz.

2. FORBES OF KINGENNIE (Broughty

Ferry)

For the first time this year it’s really feeling like spring with the daffodils coming out and some nice wee hatches of buzzers bringing fish up to the surface. The settled weather has given the water a chance to clear and clarity is getting better in all the ponds, with boathouse being very clear again. The Boathouse has been steady with anglers all week and returns have been good. A really good mix of patterns and methods has taken fish from dries to big lures. On Saturday the Wilson party had an outstanding day returning 44 fish to their 3 rods, most of the fish were taken on a bung with a Wotsit. Mr Mills kept his three fish for 7lb 9oz and put a couple back. Mr Westland put back 8 on Buzzers and a Fab with one estimated at 11lb.The Burnside has been a bit hit or miss with some anglers doing very well and some finding it hard. Lures have been the go to method but Buzzers have out fished those most of the time. Mr Birse had 20 fish pulling a White and Yellow lure, Mr Jones had 19 returned on Buzzers, Mr Costello had 6 on Buzzers, Mr Thompson returned 8 on Bloodworms and Mr Cheetham kept 5 for 12lb and put back 6 on Green Pheasant Tails. The Bankside again has seen the least pressure and fished well to those that have found the fish. Mr Hogg had 8 fishing the Bung, Mr Barlow had 9 one day and 8 the next fishing Buzzers and Mr Osler had 5 on a Green Wotsit. The Woodside has been getting busier and some good returns have had. Spinners have been great for finding fish and getting fast action but the float is still working. Messrs. Taylor and Balfour had 6 fish for 11lb on spinners. Mr Hamilton had 4 for 7lb on the fly and Mr Torrance had 4 for 8lb 12oz.

5. SWANSWATER (Stirling)

Another good week’s fishing at Swanswater. The first half of the week saw fish around 3 to 4 feet down, mainly around the dam area. The second half of the week, with the water temperatures rising to 6 degrees the fish would normally be expected to move to the slightly warmer water nearer the channel, but instead they appeared to follow the wind and were around two feet down presumably feeding on some early hatches. Most successful flies this week continued to be various lures, especially Dancers, Cats and Cormorants. Wet flies should be more prolific soon with the arrival of the Brown Trout season on Wednesday.

2. FORBES OF KINGENNIE (Broughty

Ferry)

Here at Kingennie this past week the variations in weather conditions have made fishing rather more challenging but some excellent catches have been recorded. The Boathouse Pool is clearing again after all the heavy rain at the weekend and  water clarity on the Burnside has dropped slightly as well but there are still plenty fish getting caught. In the Boathouse the best method has still been the bung with variety of flies from buzzers to the Wotsit and Squirmies. When pulling lures, Cormorants and small Damsels have been best. The Falconer party fished over the weekend doing well fishing through the dirty water on their first day when conditions were hard, by Monday morning it all came together and landing plenty fish including an 8lb 4oz rainbow and a stunning brownie weighing 8lb 10oz. Mr Noble had a nice fish of around 9lb in the 7 he returned and Mr Leslie returned 15 up to 9lb on a mix of wee nymphs. The Burnside has seen the dirty water make it slightly harder but if you can find the depth they are sat at the fishing has been good. Again the bung has been deadly with flies set from 3-6 feet deep taking its share of fish. Leggy Apps Bloodworms have been ones of the best flies as well as the Okey Dokey and lures. Mr Cheetham had 5 for 12lb and 6 returned on White and Green Lures, Mr Barlow had 11 on Buzzers under the bung with his largest around 5lb and Mr Thompson had 10 on Bloodworms and a Fab. The Bankside has seen the least pressure and those that have fished it and found the fish have had some good returns. Mr Jones had 7 on a Buzzer under a bung, Mr Barlow returned 15 on Buzzers and Mr Soave had 2 for 6lb and put back a brownie around 8lb on a White and Green Nomad. The Woodside has been fairly quiet but those fishing have done well. Spinners have been taking most fish as well as a few on a float. Mr Whitecross had 4 for 9lb, Mr Jones and his son had 4 for 8lb and Mr Arbuckle took 2 for 5lb.

5. SWANSWATER (Stirling)

Despite the coloured water on some days and the changeable weather throughout the week the fishing has been really good on all three ponds at the fishery. The fish were wide spread around Swanswater with the action mostly close to the Big Tree and the Far Bay, although occasionally the Island was still the place to be. Generally the fish were sitting around 3 feet in the water however some anglers had to go to a depth of 6 feet to have success. Fish were mostly being taken on lures, including Dancer, Cat and Cormorant with black and green being the preferred colours. Others were being taken on Buzzers towards the end of the week. Wet flies including Kate McLaren are contributing to the promising signs for the start of the Brown Trout season in just over a weeks’ time, with an exceptional number of over wintered beauties being caught and released during the last few weeks. The fishery will be stocking a large quantity of outstanding Brown Trout in coming weeks, including some ‘specimen monsters’!!
