About Loch Fad

DSC_9131The fishery is suitable for both the serious and novice angler with a large area of the loch, and the 30 boats with 4hp outboards. Bait and spinning is permitted from the bank at the north end of the loch.
The loch is stocked several times each week with quality reared fish at a minimum size of 1lb 4oz ranging up to 18lbs.
Early in the season most of the locals fish clear intermediate lines teamed up with patterns like the Black Zonker and Black & Green Fritz. As the water warms the fish spread out and good buzzer hatches will have the fish right on top. There is also a hatch of mayfly, although the timing of this varies from year to year. As summer progresses Stonefly & Sedges can be seen over most of the loch, so traditionals like Dunkeld, Mallard and Claret and Silver Invicta are worth a try.We have a good selection of flies on sale at the Bailiffs Hut.

The facilities at the head of Loch Fad include a picnic area, anglers shelter, toilets, partial disabled access, tuition*, ghillie* and rod hire* and our staff are on hand to offer expert and helpful advice.
