Post Loch Venachar

Fishing was hard. Managed only one fish. Nice brown trout about one and half pounds mark just by the margins on the opposite bank from the boat house and cafe.

There were more pike fishermen and people spinning from the margins on the day. Witnessed a lot of insect hatching but didn't see a single rise from a trout.

I think the venue is more popular and associated with with the pike fishing now than any other fishing.

it is odd that when they started charging pike fishers, more appeared, its like they dont like fishing for free or something.

As an avid pike angler Venachar is another one of my top waters only topped by lomond, the real way to fish venachar is by taking your dead baits out on a bait boat 150 to 200 yards out as there is some deep water out there and some massive pike. I usually take 6 - 7 doubles in a session and every 2 to 3 trips I will take a 30+
