Some of you may have noticed the new red signs appearing on the River Devon downstream of Menstrie:
The good news is that the Devon Association have agreed to take an additional lease with Crown Estate Scotland for their fishing between Menstrie and the old railway bridge at Cambus. Work Parties have already been clearing accesses to the banks, putting up signs etc. We will share more information on access etc and amend the beat maps in the next months.
The weekends storms mostly seem to have bypassed Clackmannanshire and Kinrossshire but there has been enough rain to give the lower river a couple of good cleaning flushes which should improve trout fishing markedly.
July was a quite month at Glenquey (seems to happen most years). We had 46 catch returns with a total of 75 trout being caught with a mean weight 0.61lb and anglers catching an average 1.6 trout per visit (of course masking a few blanks and a few more successful anglers). Hopefully August will bring less cloudless and still days!
