Salmon Fishing - Loch Lomond Scotland

O. S. Map 56

The Loch Lomond system can produce up to 1500 salmon and a similar number of sea trout, from the loch itself, which at twenty one miles long and covering an area of 17,500 acres, is Scotland's largest loch,  along with the major tributaries Fruin and Endrick, and the River Leven which runs the short distance from Balloch to enter the Firth of Clyde at Dumbarton. Most of the fishing on the system is managed by the Loch Lomond Angling Improvement Association, who issue day, week and season permits.

The main tributary, the River Endrick, rises in the Fintry hills then flows for twenty miles westwards via Fintry, Balfron and Killearn and over the "Pots" of Gartness before entering Loch Lomond near Balmaha. At one time one of the premier sea trout fisheries in Scotland, the runs of migratory fish have declined dramatically since the mid eighties. Although some of the best beats are now unfortunately in private hands and inaccessible to the average fisher, much of the river can be fished by members of the Loch Lomond Angling Improvement Association, which is open to all (subject to a maximum membership limit) for the price of a yearly subscription. The Association is working hard to reverse the decline in stocks and applications for membership, which includes the fishing on Loch Lomond, the River Leven and the River Fruin, should be directed to tackle shops in the Glasgow area.

Map of Loch Lomond


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.
