The better milder weather for the time of year has brought out anglers in better numbers and the fishing has been excellent again this week. All 3 lochans fished well this week for fly and bait anglers. Many anglers bagged their fish limits. There is a very good head of trout in all 3 lochans at the moment. Best flies this week: Black/Orange Cheeked Buzzer, Bloodworm, Black / White Fritz, and Holographic Diawl Bachs fished on a long leader. Best Baits: Ledgered Worm, Maggots and Size 1 Mepps Spinners.
We have had some very cold nights and days as well, lakes froze over but where ice free spaces are there are fish to be caught, best baits are maggot, sweetcorn, pellet. Graham Skirrey who is primarily a silver angler caught 99lb of carp on peg 24 on Wed by casting through the gap between the islands and used double sweet corn.

Another busy week at Wellsfield Fishery, the frequent stocking of up to 4 times per week at the moment, is producing significant catches for trout anglers. All three lochans fished well this week for those fly fishing and bait fishing. Many anglers bagger their fish limits catching Rainbow Trout, Blue Trout and Brown Trout. The average weight was just over 3lb 2oz per fish. Largest fish of the week was a 12lb rainbow trout caught by William Caddiss (Stirling) in his bag of 3 trout for 18lb (see photo). One Red £50 Prize Tag was caught this week by lucky angler T McPherson (Glasgow).
