Carron Valley Reservoir, created in the nineteen thirties by the flooding of the upper valley of the River Carron, is one of the most scenic trout fisheries in Scotland. Situated high in the Campsie Fells - yet only a ten minute drive from Stirling, half an hour from Glasgow and forty minutes from Edinburgh - the loch offers boat and bank fly fishing for rainbow trout & wild and stocked brown trout in magnificent surroundings.
Since its completion in 1939, the 1000 acre reservoir has proved an ideal habitat for the Carron's indigenous wild brown trout population. Thriving on the rich feeding of the newly flooded river valley and with easy access to its many excellent spawning and nursery streams, the wild brownies of the Carron Valley Reservoir are now well and truly established, providing some of the best brown trout fly fishing in Scotland. In addition, Carron Valley Fishery stock grade A quality rainbow trout to enable the angler an all round trout experience to remember.
The trout fishing on the loch is managed by Carron Valley Fishery Ltd. Through a careful policy of regular supplementary stocking of top quality trout, the fishery management have built on the loch's well deserved reputation as Scotland's premier trout fishery. The area around the loch is very popular with walkers, ramblers, mountain bikers and nature lovers and boasts a wide variety of wildlife, all thriving in breathtaking surroundings. In addition to the best brown trout fishing in Scotland the fishery at Carron Valley also provides a free information service to non anglers who wish to enjoy the local area.
