The fishing last week at Kingennie has been just like the weather - superb!! All of the ponds have settled and have good visibility. The best angler bar none over the past week or so has been osprey with a fish every "cast" and has been seen to take two or three fish a day with spectacular aerial displays and diving.

The pond that has fished best has been the Burnside with anglers having big numbers of fish even on a four hour ticket.

Boathouse Pool has fished well with the bulk of the fish between 5lb and 10lb and most anglers have had bag limits with lures taking nearly all of the fish, intermediate lines have worked best teamed with a lure and a small attractor on the dropper. The Burnside Pool has kept the anglers busy with fish on the top looking for dries one minute and then only taking lures the next. Flies that have worked well in have been the Daddy, Sedge and various Muddlers but when they have been after lures it is still the Sparkly Damsel or the Salmon Pink Hottie that have worked best. The Bankside has fished well with anglers having great success with all manner of flies and patterns that have done best are various Buzzers, Diawl Bach, the Rob Roy, Green Pea or the Herr Fly.

The good news from the fishery is that there will be no price increases at the fishery for 2011 and the season will get underway on Saturday 26th February. The water was stocked a bit earlier this year so by this time the fish should be pretty well dispersed but as always the Dam Wall is worth a cast or two. Lures are most likely to be the order of the early days so the likes of the Cat’s Whisker, Coral Dancer and the Damsel Nymph will head the list but if it is at all mild then a team of dark Buzzers will be worth a swim
