Just to let everyone know, the main road coming up from Dechmont to Linlithgow has been closed. We have been told that coming from Linlithgow side will remain open, I drove this way last night and it did work, there was closed signs but there was access to the road back to the fishery.
The diversion coming from Dechmont side is now taking you along into Uphall and at the traffic lights you will follow the diversion signs up over to Ecclesmachan. At this point you will be able to turn left at the signpost for the golf course and West Binny just at the start of Ecclesmachan. You will then drive along this road until you get to the road that is partially closed, you can drive on this road as there is access allowed to the fishery if anyone asks, this is what I did also yesterday. Turn left and follow road down to the fishery road that is sign posted.

I have attached a map on BangourTroutFishery Facebook page with all the roads that can be used to get to the fishery.You do not have to be a member of Facebook to view the page. I apologise for this but as usual we knew nothing about this until the weekend. I have also had to wait until today to see what part of the road was closing first.

I will try to keep posting as we know the changes

Top Rod for the week last was Tony Pryde who managed to catch 17 trout, 9 on Klink Hammers and 8 on buzzers, Gary White caught 13 fish on a mixture of Olive Shipmans and Bloodworms, A Laing caught 10 fish on a mixture of CDC's, Buzzers and Daddies, Jocky Weir caught 9 fish in his four hours fishing on Black Rabbits and Yellow Dancers, W Brown caught 7 fish on Green Shipman Buzzers and Red Buzzers. Liam Dyet caught 6 fish on Black spiders and Buzzers and D Hawthorn with 6 fish all caught on CDC's.

We had The Harrow Fishing club on the water on the Saturday and the top rod in numbers was Ian Earlle who caught 8 fish during the day. Top rod in weight was Andrew Ferrier with 4 fish weighing in at 11lb 12oz. Good fishing for most of the club as the wind was really strong on the Saturday but fish were being caught all through the day despite the high swirling winds.

Fishing was really good for most on the Sunday and we really did see a lot of fish being caught on the dry flies. Young Angler Harrison Hall caught his first rainbow from Bangour and Craig Bennett caught his first ever tiger from Bangour also
