Lintrathen Loch continues to fish very well with some nice catches being recorded over the past fortnight.

Anglers have reported fish being up very near the surface on the warmer days but going down a few feet when the air became colder.

Best flies were Glister bodied Cormorants, dark bodied Hoppers and Snatchers, Pearly Invicta and green and black bodied lures.

Fish were being taken on intermediate lines fished very very slowly. During early afternoon, some fish were being taken on the surface with floating lines and dark flies.
