Tinto Trout Fishery Bio

Should you go for the wild Brownies in a heathery hill-loch, or pristine stocked Rainbows and Blues that really pull in the other? The choice is yours at Tinto. 

Anglers are often speechless at the views as far as Ben Lomond, and the ‘Hill of Fire’ sunsets are really worth waiting for, but it’s hard to look up when the fishing can be so intense. Hearing the curlews, cuckoos, woodpeckers and the odd grouse constantly reminds you to appreciate the finer things in life, when frantically tying on your next offering as the fish are on the boil in the gentle ripple. The spring fed pristine lochs of ‘Lyoch’ sitting at 960ft above sea-level, and ‘Cleugh’ at 1020ft are home to nothing short of remarkable trout. The clear untouched water, which was once the local water supply, is thought to be the reason for their condition. Tinto trout are not always easy to catch, and the formula can vary from one hour to the next with the exposed setting, however the rewards when you do crack the code and hook up, are second to none – They fight like lions and they are fin perfect.

Both lochs have a dam wall on the North-West side and then are lined naturally otherwise. Due to the exposed location it is worth packing the car with every bit of tackle you might regret leaving at home. Also, bring many layers of clothing, it can be lovely one minute with sun bursting, Scotch mist and a gentle breeze, and then quite the opposite the next. An East wind can be very challenging at Tinto, but it also brings the bigger fish in Loch Lyoch to the stripped lure.
