Until the current algal bloom dissipates Stirling Council is advising (as of 8/9/17) that all fishing at the Lake is on a catch and release basis only. We are providing measuring boards to facillitate angling competitions. See note from Stirling Council environmental Health below.

"The lake of Menteith currently has very elevated levels of Cyanobacteria throughout. However there has been no evidence of toxins in the water or fish, and no abnormal behaviour of the fish at this point in time. As such the fish are likely to be safe to eat at the moment , but we cannot guarantee that this will still be the case in the coming days as the temperature drops and the Cyanobacteria die. Therefore the advisory is not to consume fish caught in the lake until the blooms have dissipated and further tests confirm the absence of toxins. However, recreational activities where fish are caught and released could be undertaken once all participants were aware of the risk posed by Cyanobacteria."

BOAT SAFETY RISK ASSESSMENT
(Essential reading for all those going out on the Lake)

Set in the Trossachs, amidst magnificent scenery where Highland meets Lowland, the 700-acre Lake of Menteith is a well regarded rainbow and brown trout fishery in Scotland and is reputed to be the best location for fly fishing for rainbow trout and brown trout in Central Scotland.

Its central location (Glasgow 45 mins, Edinburgh 60 mins, Perth 50 mins) makes it ideal for meeting with friends for a day's or evening's fishing. See Directions

The Lake is stocked weekly with 1000 to 1500 quality trout, and yields an average landed fish weight of over 2lbs. In 2016 the average 2 man boat (8hr) catch was 5.9 trout for 13.9lbs. The catch and release percentage was 63%.

The 30-strong fleet of Lomond (Sweeney) Boats has recently been upgraded, and all are equipped with Yamaha or Suzuki outboards. The impressive fishery cabin, with Permit Office/Tackle shop, Fishers Cafe and wood burning stove howff area are available to the anglers.

The Lake has been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest due to its exceptional fauna and flora. Historically the lake has much to offer, with the impressive and tranquil ruins of the 13th century Inchmahome Priory situated on the largest of the Lake's three islands.

These attributes make the Lake an outstanding venue for some of the most prestigious fishing competitions and a great day out for all anglers.
