The discount will not be available for use in competitions which are already sponsored or given a discount by the Lake (eg. SANACC National,  Scottish Club Championships and Fario Menteith Boat League). The discount card will be valid for a year from date of purchase and can be used as part of a club booking or for individual boats.

All Anglers must read our Angler Risk Assessment.

Maximum of three persons per boat, all of whom may fish, although for comfort two is preferable. Boatmen are only in attendance at the start and finish of the sessions. If you require help telephone numbers are available in all the boats. For angling competitions competitors are advised that catch and release cards are available for when the number of fish required for the table has been reached. To minimise handling during catch and release we recommend that the time of the first fish caught be used to decide the winner in the event of a tie. Read our risk assessment (see website).




Catch and release is allowed at cooler water temperatures. Above 18 to 20C water temperature, in the interests of fish welfare, we ask anglers to limit catch and release, as the Lake becomes deficient in oxygen at depth and in the surface layers – this can prevent fish recovery after catching. Hooks must be debarbed or barbless when fishing catch and release. Releasing of fish should be done in the net in the water without a lengthy playtime. All fish under 11 inches to be returned. Fly fishing only.  Only landing nets, unhooking mats, drogues and fish bags provided by fishery allowed in boats. No trawling, hand lining or bait. No anchoring or mooring. Maximum of three persons per boat, all of whom may fish. The Health and Safety Executive requires that buoyancy aids or life jackets provided must be worn. Landing on islands is forbidden. No interfering with nets or fixed equipment. For Fly pike fishing proper pike gear is required (hire/loan available, including debarbed single hooks (max size 6), unhooking pliers, mats and nets. All pike to be returned unharmed. Complete pike rules available at fishery or on the website.

It is against our rules to return a fish that is unlikely to recover (i.e. is not vigorous and breathing). The ruling is that catch limits can be exceeded where fish are not deemed fit to be returned. Extra fish must be recorded in our catch return sheet.

Anglers must read our risk assessment available on the website or at the fishery before commencing fishing.
