If you don't have tackle of your own, and you want to have a go, we have both fly and bait rods, nets, a large selection of flies and lures all here on site - all you need to bring is yourself. We have a heated lodge, with toilet facilities for the disabled, as well as a sitting area and a selection of snacks and hot and cold drinks. Car parking is right beside the lodge, and 30 metres from the lochs, but disabled anglers are welcome to drive right up to the edge of the water.

The Lochs at Glen of Rothes
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 - the Fishery itself stocks a number of tagged fish each month, and the angler that catches one immediately receives £100 cash, providing you have entered into it and always ask about it. We can forget now and then to say about it. During the summer, we have a resident Osprey, and there is often an Otter on the go during the winter months. Hot food is available all day with bacon rolls, burgers, chips or why not have an all day breakfast, as well as a well stocked tackle shop for all your fishing needs.

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.

Qualified instruction is very important for your safety and to give you the correct grounding for your future fly fishing. We have a Fully Qualified APGAI/FFFCI instructor resident at the fishery, who is First Aid trained, disclosure checked and insured. Advance booking is essential for this. Taught by someone who is enthusiastic and loves the sport whether a beginner or improver ,young or old you will always remember your experiences with warmth. Accommodation can be arranged for you should you require it with a range of accommodation offered.

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