    If there is reduced numbers returning from the sea to spawn you will get reduced reds, the salmon farms haven't helped and high seas trawling is what is putting the most pressure on the stocks, having hatcheries would only reduce the number of fish spawning where they would naturally end up and...

    Considering they stocked with fry and parr over a period of time did this improve the stocks no one and not even you can say for certain what is certain, when I started fishing the Leven I said to the local anglers make the most of this as in 10 years time you see the decline come with fish...

    They did and it found there wasn't much of value left as said in previous post, harking back to the bad old days isn't going to help the system, it's in the past we need to move on and find solutions. Our fishing is pretty much on it's arse right now and squabbling over which Committee did what...

    unf unfortunately mere hear say it worked well doesn't cut it in the real world, and what if the science proved that removing fish from other tributary's of the system actually harmed the stock, the only time they even identified the parr/ smolts put in was the one off occasion at the end of...

    There wasn't financial irregularities at the end of Michael's tenure just spending on the Endrick parts we bought, equipment that wasn't worth much and the fabled Smolt programme which didn't achieve much, the fisheries wasn't that great and if you saw it you would realize you couldn't produce...

    Think you might want to review your history of how it all fell apart, as for funding why would the LLFT give the LLAIA free information they also have to fund scientists to have their work validated so that it's Peer reviewed and can be used, we should be glad that both parties are working...

    Very poor with only one practice redd on the Endrick this week which could be down to water temperatures being high, on the Leven water levels too high to see what has happened, but up till this week hadn't seen any signs of fish and the only one we did was a wee seatrout... it looked lost.

    Loch Lomond & river Leven 2020

    Nothing was done on the Leven as the Pandemic would not allow close proximity of people, difficult to strimm and clean up when we aren't eve allowed out so to that end not much can be done... as to the poor year unfortunately indeed it has been one, we won't know how good a spring run we had as...
