Well the most important news was undoubtedly the decision of the Scottish Government to refuse planning permission to CEMEX to operate a sand & gravel quarry in Glenquey. It has been a long saga and hopefully the risk of quarrying in the glen is gone for good. Thanks to members and visitors who took the time to make representation first to Perth & Kinross Council and then the Scottish Government.
Glenquey is featured in an article in the September issues of Total Flyfisher [see earlier post https://devonanglingassociation.org.uk/2015/08/23/total-flyfisher-september-2015-at-glenquey/ ]
The reservoir has remained very high for much of the summer and the miserable weather in July certainly put off some anglers but 47 tickets were returned with anglers catching 112 trout with an average of 0.66lb/trout and 2.4 trout/visit.
August figures will follow probably at the close of the season
The committee are looking into opening up more fishing on the north bank. This will take a lot of effort and is a bit of a logistical nightmare!
There is about three weeks of fishing left at Glenquey so hopefully the last days of the season will see some big hauls!
