Fishing At Loch Venachar

by Jayne Chisholm
(Lanarkshire, Scotland)

Loch Venachar is in Scotland (about 4 miles from Callander and about 1 hours drive from Glasgow). There is great fishing there; they have a really good stock of brown trout especially.

This is a brown trout we caught while away camping there around 2 weeks ago. We caught around 7 in all and none of them were under 2 lbs in weight.

The weather was fantastic all day and we set up our fishing gear when it started to get dark, and fished until around 3 a.m.

The only problem with the whole trip though was the dreaded Scottish midges! As usual the only thing to keep the bitey little blighters at bay was Avon's Skin So Soft spray. Seriously, it is the only thing that works, and we have tried every remedy known to man!!!

It hasn't put us off going back to Loch Venachar though, as the scenery is so stunning. It's incredible to think that you're only one hour's drive from Glasgow!

Anyway, I hope you all like the picture as I'm quite proud of it!

camping and fishing at loch venachar
by: Callander

Glad you enjoy visiting our area, please continue to fish and camp and please try to encourage all others to take the garbage home and clean up fire sites etc, as there are no bins on the loch and rubbish deposited at roadside laybys etc will not be collected by the council.
There is a great deal of irresponsible camping and fishing in this area and there are rumours to (a) limit fishing/camping to daylight hours only or (b) ban it altogether. Let's hope this does not occur, so please help out by having a word with others you see. Thanks
