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 trout, in magnificent surroundings on this lovely loch, created by the flooding of the upper Carron valley in the nineteen thirties.

The maps on this website have been reproduced with the permission of Collins Bartholomew. Please note that these maps may date back several decades. 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 always been.

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.
