Fish movements at Kingennie

A FEW milder afternoons, last Wednesday and Friday to Sunday with a westerly breeze resulted in large surface movements of fish at Kingennie, especially in the Bankside Pool.

Good numbers of rainbows were taken on various dry fly patterns and buzzers also produced positive results. The Osprey is now making daily visits to the ponds to show us how to catch fish.

Most of the fish from the Boathouse were around the 5lbs mark but a couple of much larger fish were lost close to the island. Black and green lures, yellow dancer and various buzzer patterns all took fish.

Beadhead nymphs and buzzers did the trick on the Burnside but it was somewhat moody with most of the fish being taken in short spells.

The Bankside Pool offered some superb sport with a total of 36 fish taken and 126 returned over a three day period. Many of these fell to dries but nymphs, buzzers and small lures also took decent numbers.

N.Coupar had four fish for 11lbs 14ozs and R. Wilson took four for 11lbs.

Woodside Pool (any legal method) had a patchy week but ended with 15 fish being taken on Sunday for a combined weight of 23.75lbs. Green powerbait maintained its supremacy and sweetcorn also produced some decent fish.

An unusual catch was an Ide estimated at 5lbs. This was in superb condition and was returned unharmed to the water.
