Loch Katrine Fisheries opened early this month providing fishing for wild trout and pike for the first time in 10 years.

The tarriff for a full day 9 - 5.30 is £40.00, 1/2 day £20.00 per boat (£45.00 / £25.00 at weekends) The tariff includes the boat rental, electric engine with two fully charged battery, landing net and permit. The permit is for 2 anglers using 1 rod each for trout and 2 rods for pike. An additional licence (£15.00) would be required for a third angler.

Simon and Carole Cranefield, who run the The Pier Tea Room at the west end of Loch Katrine, will be running the fisheries from the tearoom where bookings can be made, permits can be purchased and boats can be hired. The tearoom will also be offering meals and snacks throughout the fishing season.

Six Coulam15 boats with electric outboard motors are now available to hire to individual anglers, groups or clubs, it is anticipated that more boats will be made available as demand is established and grows. The clinker style boats are roomy, stable and surprisingly light to row for the size, they drift well and are comfortable with three rods fishing.

The naturally stocked loch, 120 metres deep produces healthy, good sized fish which will offer some fantastic opportunities for keen fishermen. Using fish finder technology it has been shown that the Loch Katrine holds a healthy population of fish including Pike, Ferox and Char. informal test fishing carried out by Alistair Huskie of Spinfish Magazine has shown fish averaging about three quarters of a pound.

The dramatic scenery of Loch Katrine provides idyllic surroundings, first made famous by Sir Walter Scott’s Lady of the Lake. Loch Katrine is eight miles long and an average of one mile wide, flanked by mountains on all sides. Although easily reached, traffic is controlled around the edge of the loch to avoid contamination of the principal source of water for Glasgow, this results in a tranqil and secluded location that provides the perfect place to fish.
