Fishing Report - Holiday Fishers Score at Lochter Activity Centre

Although many people like to go abroad for the Aberdeen Trade, the Glasgow Fair etc., there are plenty of “stay cautioners” who are content to spend their holidays in the land of their birth.

The North East of Scotland has become a popular destination and it is amazing how many dads manage to smuggle a fishing rod and associated tackle into the car before setting out on holiday.

Lochter Activity Centre in Oldmeldrum has proved a very popular spot for visitors offering as it does a wide choice of sporty activities including Karting, Clay Shooting, Segway Driving, 4X4, and of course Fishing.

The three lochs and the two bait ponds have been very busy with Anglers young and old out enjoying both the sport and the nice weather.

All manner of flies have been working from small dries to lurid blobs.

Derrick Thomson used the latter to tempt fourteen including a nice four-pounder. The same result as Doug Mair had also using blobs with Doug’s best tipping the scale at 7lbs. Pete Green kept ringing the changes from buzzers to dries to small nymphs and was rewarded with eleven good fish.

Stephen Anderson from Glenrothes used CDC’s and an orange daddy and had a great day with sixteen to his name while Aberdeen angler Bill Reid stuck with the klinkhammer dries and netted eleven including a beauty at 8lbs.

Evenings have been fishing well with Adam Brian tempting ten in a late session, all on nymphs.

On days of changeable weather anglers who varied their tactics did best and with the forecast being more of the same, a variation of methods will be the secret of success.
