Default Muskgrass Algae, or simply annoying weed

Goldenloch June-14-10

This last week at the Goldenloch has been extremely hard fishing, however anglers have still managed to catch some very respectable catches, the first reason was the cold north east wind that was blowing for five days, it really put the fish down in the water and evenings that were building up for what looked like there was going to be a good rise never happened, very frustrating for those that were fishing, secondly the huge tadpole hatch that occurred some weeks ago has now produced a few billion tadpoles and the fish seem to be sucking these into their mouths and therefore are not that interested in anything else, unless it was sort of resembling a juicy variation of a big fat tadpole, the weed problem is now starting to ease quite considerably firstly we have cleared a large area at the front and at the far end of the loch it seems to be lying down the worst area is right in the middle and a bit up the bank side, what we have discovered is that this is not weed but a form of algae and as such is why we have been having such a problem trying to get rid of it,
(Chara ssp. Common name muskgrass, is a gray-green branched multicellular algae that is often confused with submerged flowering plants. However, Chara has no flower, will not extend above the water surface, and often has a "grainy" or "crunchy" texture. Chara has cylindrical, whorled branches with 6 to 16 branchlets around each node.)
But now that we have identified it and have managed to find another fishery with the same problem near Sheffield we have his ideas on how best to control it so as from to-day there is a new idea about to be tried. But something that we did find out is that the fish excel in it and that it is very common in the USA, grass carp and ducks love it and that it has a shortish growing period.

Default Goldenloch 21 June 2010

Fishing at the Goldenloch this week has definitely moved up a gear and all the lads visiting have all had a great time, even with the blistering hot sun, fish are moving freely about the loch, now its not uncommon for fish to bump into a boat it may be when they are chasing something or it can happen occasionally when a boat is sitting in an area and something starts hatching, but on Saturday past, two novice anglers were in a boat teaching themselves to fish and a crackin 3lb rainbow jumped into the boat, did it get put back ?? Would you have put it back??, the catches book is much better reading and the range of flies being used much more interesting from hoppers to daddies, sedges, cdc buzzers and of course many different dries, A & R Pebbles Cupar on Friday night had 4, J Hunter and W Scott Kelty had a great days sport with many put back keeping 6 for 16lbs, using damsel flies Mr Hennen, and Anderson Leven had 4 for 10lbs, Pete Linton and J Wilson 6 for 15lbs, on buzzers, the water clarity is excellent and the feeding in the water can only be described as abundant, every one seems to manage to take home a few fish for the pot.

Default Really Hot Week

Date: Monday, June 28 @ 09:22:57 BST
Topic: Fishing Reports


Goldenloch June-28-10

This last week at the Goldenloch has been extremely hot with the Sun shinning very bright, every day anglers have just been basking in the sunlight, obviously the fishing has been quite difficult in these conditions, but still a fair amount of fish have been caught, on scanning through the catches book, almost everyone has caught at least 2 fish, the water is clear with great visibility, surprisingly after this hot spell, the free moving surface algae that was attempting to form has gone away, the weed (Chara) is now dropping down much lower in the water and the area next to the long west bank is free completely, however if you were fishing a gold headed fly you would still catch weed if you let your fly go too deep, right in the middle of the loch around the large rock and beyond, there is an area that I have not touched regarding weed pulling or cutting this because it seems that the weed we have, is the best weed ever or rather algae, as it consumes phosphates and nitrates from the water, it will never come through the surface, it harbours massive amounts of insect life and gives great shading for the fish, anglers that have adapted to fishing around and above it absolutely swear that the fishing is by far the best ever and just fantastic, so now you understand why I am loathe to get rid of it, when it is only bothering a few that are fishing with heavy lures and goldheads, a bit of bad news is that two signets died this week when they got tangled up with fishing lines down their throats, what was tragedy was the fact that this happened on land and that the two lines had been rolled up and discarded it, looks like the two birds had picked it up and choked on them, please we provide bins put old line tins bottles rubbish in the bins, you wouldn’t leave trash in your own garden.

Default Putting in More Brownies

Date: Monday, July 05 @ 09:16:08 BST
Topic: Fishing Reports


Goldenloch July-05-10

At the Goldenloch its been yet another really hot week and like the previous week we have had some good days fishing and some poorer days, what is obvious though, is the amount of feeding readily available in the loch, it has just exploded and the fish are just cruising around, they certainly aren’t looking to hard for fisherman’s flies, however it has to be noted that the sunrise just now is about 2.3am which means that anglers arriving here to fish at say 8 or 9 are actually arriving in what would be the middle of the day for a trout and as they feed mostly in the mornings they are going to be pretty hard to catch at that time of day, this week we have a few small brownies coming as a little bit of fun for the anglers at least they will be darting around looking for small flies, its anything we can do to try and make your visit with us worthwhile, if this works and makes the fishing a bit more fun then I think we would easily consider upping our brownie content to about 40% from the current 20% , our weed problem still exists in an area, best described as right in the middle, the bank down where the tee shaped jetties are and along the shore front is completely clear, at the far end and the small bay at the top just have little patches and clearing and the bottom bay has weed lying on the bottom which has been cut and is dead, just not removed as the water is too deep to get at it, by the middle of this week most will have been addressed, if its not to windy.

Default Goldenloch Report week-end 11th July

Some seriously good fishing at the Goldenloch now that the rain has cooled the loch, anglers are really having great sport and the brownies that we were supposed to put in never arrived, their does seem to be a shortage of brown trout at the moment, however I am working on it and hope to get some soon, but not to so for some anglers for in the last few days we have seen some crackin brown trout get caught, Don Stewart from Glasgow had a beaut at 3.5lbs and returned another at 2lbs, Dave Wilson, Kingskettle had 3 for 10lbs also returning a load of fish many of which were brown trout, he also commented that he had dropped a load of fish and that he probably had his best days fishing for a long time, Tim Dover, Bridge of Earn brought along a friend that stays near them, and never having fished before so Tim gave a brief lesson and the gent went on to fish catching a 4.5lb and a 3.5lb rainbow absolutely chuffed was the comment as they left, Tim absolutely loves his fishing and uses his fish that he catches in their restaurant “The Roost” which is at the gates of the Kilgraston school in Bridge of Earn, Sandy Kapyto, Kirkcaldy, fishing with the Kaits Wiskers, who were having a camping weekend, BBQ type, sleepover, caught three really nice rainbows and then had to return some stunning brownies, the wind and rain kinda spoilt their stay but fun was had by all and some really nice fish were caught, all to the background music of the distant T in the Park, Best flies just now seem to be Dark Green Klinkhammers and Hares ear Diawl Bach Nymphs, with the usual assortment of black and red buzzers, the weed problem has all but gone in fact the weeds that are left are attracting not only the fish but the fishermen that were complaining about them only a couple of weeks ago, the comments now are that the weed is great and giving superb cover to the fish??? It’s impossible to get it right when your running a fishing loch and it doesn’t matter what or how you do things its always going to upset someone.

Default Goldenloch July-19-10

The past week at the Goldenloch has been very unusual weather wise as the wind was not nearly as strong as was forecast, apart from Friday, the forecasters had said that mid week the weather was to be really windy and yes each day we had a big wind but only for an hour or so, some days like Wednesday and Thursday were positively pleasant, and for those who turned up, they had a good days fishing, the weekend however has been pretty much back to normal with everyone putting back 5 or 6 fish, Mike and Chris McIntosh, Perth, retuned 17 in total, and were catching them using Damsels and olive crunchers, John Joiner, Errol, using a humungas, had 2 for 4lbs and Alan Burke and Jim Gourlay, Coaltown, returned 9, keeping 3 for 4lbs, Sunday was a really nice day which the forecasters had predicted as gusty, Jock Hennan and Rab Grierson, Methil, 4 for 8.5lbs with many returned, using very small buzzers and cormorants, John Leckie, Strathmiglo, kept 3 for 6lbs and returned 5 using a hares ear, with the water crystal clear and some good rises, the loch is fishing very well, the weed has all but disappeared now and is not giving a problem to the bank anglers at all, however there is a patch right in the middle of the loch that we have never tackled, needless to say this is now where most of the anglers seem to park their boats and fish two months ago they were screaming about it being a nuisance.

Topic: Fishing Reports

Its been a really interesting week at the Goldenloch with some lads visiting for the first time and getting great catches like Joe and Kenny Purves, Lochgelly, who managed to catch 3 each plus returning a few including some cracking big brown trout, one nearly in double figures and some lads who have been before catching nothing, however its all about covering the ground some days it’s the bank fishing that is by far the best and on others its from the boats but what I will say is that the fish very much are only feeding on Green / olive flies such as diawl bachs or nymphs with the old favourite a green peter doing very well, so fishing with lures and fritz aint doing so well you have got to change, most if not nearly all have left here in the last week with some really nice fish and putting back a few as well, Graham Ramsay, Kirkcaldy had a 8.75lb bow in his bag of 3, Alex Millar Cupar using a green cruncher had 3 with his best about 4lbs all returned, regulars Grierson and Hennan, Methil had some really nice fish all caught on buzzers, Russell Robertson Glenfarg using nymphs and buzzers, 3, as did B Stewart Dundee, however well worth a mention this week is Alex Burns, Kirkcaldy, who caught his second anchor in a space of only a few weeks, over the years we as you would imagine lose anchors of boats for a variety of reasons and they are never seen again but thanks to Alex we now have 2 back, he also caght with his cormorant fly a nice brace of trout.
