Trout Fishing Carronbridge, Scotland
Carronbridge lies in the Campsie Fells to the
north of Kilsyth midway between Glasgow and Stirling. To the trout
fisherman, the main attraction here is Carron Valley Reservoir,
offering boat and bank fishing for brown trout, and now rainbow
magnificent surroundings on this lovely loch, created by the
flooding of the upper Carron valley in the nineteen thirties.

Much of the human detail will have changed but the character of the rivers and
lochs, and the trout and salmon in them, will be much the same as they have
In addition to the information provided
here, I would recommend that anyone planning a fishing or
walking trip in Scotland should equip themselves with a compass
and the appropriate Ordnance Survey map. The most useful of the
O.S. maps for the fisherman is the Landranger series, scale
1:50,000. For each of the lochs and rivers listed here, I have given the
relevant O.S. Map number.
