As the nights draw in and the clocks go back this weekend from Monday 30th Oct 2017 we are decreasing our full day catch tickets and also the CandR full day tickets by 2.Untill next year and the nights get longer again.So Full day 3 fish ticket will now be 26 rather than 28 and a Full days CandR will be 16 rather than 18.All other tickets remain the same price.Do be aware that when its dark the fishery will close so keep an eye on time it gets dark for your timings on fishing. UPDATE To encourage young anglers into the sport we are offering until further notice,any young angler under the age of 14 years old free fishing ,they must be fishing with an adult angler who is on a catch and release ticket only(no catch and kill).Fly fishing only applies. So to stop any confusion,thats and adult fishing a catch and release ticket only,can take a young angler fishing free who is under 14yrs old only,no charge! This does not apply to catch and take tickets.

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.
