Fishing was good overall for the 2022 season. Very good in the Spring, quieter during hot weather and plenty caught in the Autumn. Over 1000 rods fished the loch, with the catch return being 1.98 fish per rod, with an average kept weight of 2.5lb. Colin Crawford won the Lochenbreck Cup with a Rainbow of 10.25lb; and Lewis Morrow won the Junior cup with a fine fish of 2.5lb.
The loch was lightly fished again last season. This is a wild brown trout loch, beautiful fish usually around the 6-8oz size. However there are some specimen fish too. The Whineyon Cup was won by Wlodek Guzek. Fishing is by fly only at Loch Lochenbreck and Loch Whineyon. This may include dapping, but trolling is strictly forbidden.
For the 2023 season, while boats will be available from Spar in Gatehouse, and Thomson's in Kirkcudbright as usual, one boat key for Lochenbreck will be held by Chris Rigby, club vice-chair. His home is Craig Croft, Laurieston, DG7 2PT and about 1 mile from the loch, so this may help those anglers approaching from areas such as New Galloway, Castle Douglas. You can contact Chris on 07796 207173. He will also be able to provide visitor day tickets.
We now have one boat available for fishing at Loch Whineyon. The key for this is held at Thomson's in Kirkcudbright.
If you catch a good fish at either loch and would like a photo to go onto the website please get in touch.
