Fishing on Loch LevenFishing on Loch Leven

Fishing in a National Nature Reserve, using boats that are over one hundred years old, on a loch that’s the only home of the original brown trout. Fishing on Loch Leven is a truly unique experience.

We’ve got a fleet of 20 vessels, and there’s no limit to how many fish you can catch. They’re a rather delicious fish, but if you’re in it for the sport and have no plans to eat them, we do ask that you release them after you catch them.

The fishing season lasts from April to early October. If you’d like to book yourself a boat, you can do just that on the Loch Leven Fisheries website.
