Fished all down the South bank over 3hrs, very dour and only caught/returned 2 quarter pounders. Wind coming from all directions! No fish rising at all.
On my trek up I met another fisher on his way down, had camped overnight, again had found it tough going only returning 6 quarter pounders fishing over 8 hours.
May try north bank next time, more sheltered from the wind I think.


Had an enjoyable afternoon, returning 10-12 all about quarter to half pound. Mostly on a Blue Zulu.
Very windy so difficult casting, fished along the south bank. Casting difficult in places due to high bank behind.
Nice walk up from Cam loch, took me about 1.5hrs up and 1hr back.
