Coarse Loch

This loch is NOT an alternative to the bait/childrens loch.It is a specialised sport and anglers supply all their own tackle and baits.We do not have any hire rods or coarse tackle for this loch.No Bread/tiger nuts/hemp or heavy groundbaiting is not allowed.No bait is supplied at all.
We will also check all tackle the first time you fish it to ensure it is the correct tackle and not spinning,or beach caster type rods,bubble floats and pike gear is a no no as there is no pike!.Hook size is important and no hooks above size 12 allowed and must be barbless.
The key is to fish light,size 18,s,20 hooks best.Pole fishing is very good.

Children aged 12 and under are not allowed on the loch.

It has taken 18 years to get this loch to what it is and all the fish are healthy,so it is paramount that care is taken when releasing them

Come and learn to Fly Fish at the Glen of Rothes Trout Fishery.

Glen of Rothes has 6 acres of water, set in magnificent Highland scenery in the Northeast of Scotland, and provides excellent Stillwater bank fishing for Rainbow trout, as well as for Browns, Blue rainbows and Brook trout. The lochs are mainly fly only, but there is a dedicated coarse loch with superb quality Carp, bream, orfe and tench well into double figures and is the only coarse loch in the area and a seperate bait loch suitable for families with rainbow trout. Whether you are an expert or just looking to try something new during your holiday, there is no need to book ahead, unless you require instruction or guiding. Just come to the lodge to buy your day or part-day permit, and you will receive friendly advice on what flies and tackle to use (rods and landing nets are available for hire if you don't have your own). The water from the Fishery flows only a mile before joining the mighty River Spey, renowned throughout the world for it's salmon fishing, and the area is also the heart of the Scotch Whisky industry. There are 30 distilleries within a 20-mile radius of the Fishery, many of which are open for visitors to tour round and have a free sample of the produce. During the summer, we have a resident Osprey, and there is often an Otter on the go during the winter months. There is food available along with a well stocked tackle shop for all your tackle needs from all major brand names.


Get away from it all for a while!

The lochs are stocked on a regular basis, and daily during the summer, to ensure a steady head of fish that will give a challenging but highly rewarding day's fishing. The average weight of each fish caught has been steady at 2lb ever since the Fishery opened in 1994, and the record for the heaviest rainbow trout stands at 18 lbs and 9 ozs Catches of over 30 fish for a day are quite achievable for those who have got to know the water and how it fishes. Now that the lochs are matured and fly life is abundant, the dry fly sport is exceptionaland even the huge carp in the lochs will take a well presented fly with the best being taken around 26 lbs in weight.

Glen of Rothes Trout Fishery is a member of both the North of Scotland Stillwater Fisheries Association, and the Association of Scottish Stillwater Fisheries.
