Stocking and Loch conditions

· We will be putting 2 full stockings (1,000lbs each stocking) of trout into the Loch prior to the

start of the season - 7th and 13th March and will be stocking intensely each month.

· Water clarity is very good, being able to see at a good depth.

match them should result in good catches.

· Due to the good / mild winter conditions very few cormorants are on the Loch.

· There is a higher than average number of over wintered stocked trout, we estimate

1000+ going by what was put in and caught last season.


· Permit prices remain the same as 2018 season.
