Loch Lomond, Stirling and Trossachs - Fishing and Angling Holidays
Majestic scenery, magnificent lochs and magical fishing make this a perfect angling centre. Salmon, trout, large pike and two of the best rainbow trout lochs in the country are amongst the jewels of the Trossachs.
Loch Lomond is Scotland’s largest loch and its beauty is legend. It has many species of fish in its expansive waters including trout, sea trout, salmon, pike and other coarse fish and a relic of the ice age, the powan, a whitefish that is sadly becoming very rare.
The handsome Trossachs lochs include Venachar, Achray, Lubnaig, Voil, Chon, Katrine and Arklet. All of them offer trout fishing in stunning surroundings. Lowland lochs include Scotland’s only lake, Menteith now stocked with hard fighting rainbow trout, a premier trout water, and North Third a highly respected loch with a great reputation for quality.

The River Endrick is a major tributory to Loch Lomond while the Leven links the loch with the Forth of Clyde. Both of these rivers produce good sea trout and salmon fishing. The eastern side of the area is dominated by the River Forth system which offers some excellent salmon fishing. Its tributary the Teith enjoys good runs of fresh salmon from springtime through to late autumn. Another Forth tributary is the Allan water with sea trout and late season salmon fishing around the Bridge of Allan. On the Forth itself the town water at Stirling provides lots of good salmon fishing, mostly in September and October. See the listing for River Fishing in Stirling, Loch Lomond & The Trossachs
There are a number of quality stocked fisheries including Gartmorn Dam and Swanwater that provide convenient fishing for brown and rainbow trout all the year round. See the listing for Fisheries in Stirling, Loch Lomond & The Trossachs
Many of the lochs contain coarse fish. Loch Lomond is famous for its pike fishing but it is also home to perch, roach and ruff. Several of the Trossachs lochs have good pike populations and provide superb fly fishing for these toothy critters! See the listing for Coarse Fishing in Stirling, Loch Lomond & The Trossachs
