Due to proposed works to the dam wall North Third Trout Fishery, will not be able to open for the 2012 season.
Scottish Water need to carry out major repair and upgrading work to the dam wall. This will apparently involve reducing the water level to such an extent that it will be simply impossible for the fishery to function.
Fishery bosses said they appreciate that for many anglers this is very short notice, as the fishery was due to open on March 15 2012.
“However, we have been desperately trying to find some way round this problem. Scottish Water has also not yet been able to confirm the actual start date of the work, the full amount of draw down and how long work will continue during 2012,” – said a spokesperson.
They would like to apologise for the inconvenience and disappointment.
It is intended to re-open the fishery for the 2013 season.
