Fishing the Lochs & Rivers

Wild Brown Trout, Loch BeneveanThe area around Strathglass offers the discerning angler a rare opportunity to fish for wild brown trout and salmon amidst some of Scotland's most spectacular scenery. Although the trout season opens on the 15th March it is normally towards the end of April or early May before the waters are warm enough to entice the trout to the surface to splash and grab at a dancing bob fly.

There are a number of Lochs around Strathglass both natural and those extended by the Hydro schemes. Loch Beinn a' Mheadhoin, Loch Mullardoch and Loch Monar all offer superb trout fishing. Loch Beanacharan and the hill lochs above Tomich also provide excellent sport. Apart from the lochs, anglers enjoy the fishing on the local rivers from early April onwards and trout in the 4-5lb range are not uncommon. Check locally regarding permits for fishing on the rivers.

Nice brace of troutSalmon begin to run into the Rivers Glass and Farrar system in early June, and by July most of the beats are well stocked with fish. During July and August it is generally possible to book fishing at short notice but from mid September to the end of the season on 15th October advance booking is essential.
