Trout Fishing Glasgow, Scotland

Trout fishing is not the first thing we think of when mention is made of Glasgow. There are, nevertheless, many lochs, dams and reservoirs of varying size to the south  of the city which offer trout fishing. Some are private fisheries, some have been developed as put and take rainbow trout fisheries.

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.
