3179 trout  and recorded, numerous others caught but not recorded in book.

 

Note: A slow start to the season, it picked up as the went on, August and the weather changed for the worse with heavy rain and strong winds for near 2 weeks and that put the water levels in the lochs way up to spring level. One Char caught about half pound in September and a huge trout lost.
