The 700 acre Lake of Menteith is the main venue for the National Fly fishing Championships in Scotland. The Lake is stocked weekly , with an even distribution by boat, with top quality rainbow and brown trout that are reared in the location by Lake Staff. The 34 strong fleet of well maintained boats is equipped with reliable outboards, oars, landing nets and drogues. More boats can be made available for major events.
Our large fishery cabin has a permit office and tackle shop with a good range of flies and tippets. There is also a snack bar (open before sessions and sells snacks and hot rolls and tea/coffee) and large covered weigh in area and howff with a log burner and wash room facilities.
The low lying situation and indented nature of the Loch and islands mean that shelter is available from most wind directions. The loch is predominantly shallow (see map) and surface fishing tactics predominate.
The Lake is a natural and mesotrophic body of water and is also a site of special Scientific Interest due to the exceptional flora and fauna. Historically the Lake has much to offer, with the impressive and peaceful ruins of the 13th century Inchmahome Priory on the largest of the Lake’s three Islands.
