South Uist Fishing Reports - from Anglers' Retreat
April/ May 20
Covid 19 restriction prevented any fishing during this period.
Fishing started in earnest but sadly ony for me as we are unable to host and guests and no visitors are allowed on the islands. Estate lochs not available by boat so restricted to bank or club lochs. Unsurprisingly I made hay! My highlights were:
North Olaphat - 4 trips - 31 trout
West Olaphat - 1 trip AM- 10 trout
East Olaphat - 1 trip PM - 5 trout
Druidibeg - 4 trips from bank -22 trout
Frasers - 1 trip am (fiona) - 6 trout
Dun a Cille - 1 trip - 8 trout
Dun Mhor - 1 float tube trip 3hrs - 16 trout
Bayhead - 2 trips - 17 trout
West Ollay - 1 trip - 1 x 5lb 4oz, 1x 3lb 10oz, 1x 2lb 4oz, 1x 1lb 8oz
West Ollay - 3.5lb from bank
East Bee - 2 trips- 9 brown, 3 seatrout
The West Ollay trip was most memorable because the loch was covered in thick Sea Harr and it was freezing cold.
I have also bank fished numerous SUAC mid and hill lochs and caught another 50+ fish to 2lb.
