“Goldenloch”
August-05th - 2019, Week 29

Was looking forward to writing a report that was exhilarating and exciting, well
that’s not going to be this week, Westmill dropped in 140 fish on Tuesday average weight 897g that’s just a smidge under 2 lbs / fish a really not bad size, pretty perfect for today’s anglers, they took to the water like torpedoes I better add in here of course they were all < Rainbow “A” > as you would expect, it’s a lot of years that we have been buying fish from Cloan / Westmill, anyways the fish very quickly settled in the weeds at the far side where the temperature in the weeds is 15 degrees, but Andi Halley and I had plans to reduce that, so we spent a bit of time arranging ropes, nylon and wire, then did the biggest pull I think has ever been done at the Goldenloch, a huge amount of weed was extracted as well as the overspill which is still in the loch, awaiting a wind to blow it ashore, working with Andi is hard as he never stops, but being honest although the loch looks a bit of a mess just now after a strong wind it will look fantastic, fishing is getting much better, not good between 8am and 3pm but early morning after 4am and after 9pm at night are good Lol, but some chaps doing good like Grant McGregor, just back from his summer hols popped up on Wednesday, 4 released and a few more coming of his barbless hooks, Ralph Henderson 3 killed and 2 released on Dial Bachs, Darrin Taylor 2 on red things and a few offers but others struggle Derrie fishing during the day a blank as a few others, Dougie ex the star had 2 and so did a few others the fish, are feeding again but the water temperature is so high at 20.6 degrees in the middle, however it is 15/16 in the weeds and that is the big plus about having weed, with this weather forecast to continue it wont be long till fisheries start having loses, in 35 years being involved in running a fishery this is the first time I have seen such a constant high temperature, its been here before but never for more than a few days, but I will say that I can be happy in the fact that everyone fishing has enjoyed their visit, on the stickle back war I reckon that I am winning, now just using traps, the electro rod being too severe, had some campers here on Sat night cant believe they were so well behaved and that there was wood left over, here is the video of us pulling weed
