Wellsfield Trout Fishery

Another busy week at Wellsfield Fishery, the frequent stocking of up to 4 times per week at the moment, is producing significant catches for trout anglers.

Mr Robert Hood (Kilsyth) caught a 16lb 8oz Rainbow Trout on the fly.
One Red £50 Prize Tag was caught this week by lucky angler B McMenemy (Bonnybridge).
