Let us explain some package options for Trout Fishing in Edinburgh.
Wild River Brown Trout Fishing
The lowland rivers are rich in natural feeding and this is where the best river Trout fishing can be found in Scotland.
Wild Brown Trout average 8-10’oz, but at certain times of year you stand a good chance of landing the real specimens over 2’lbs.
Early season is best for dry fly fishing. Mid March to Early June, when the temperatures increase and hatches occur more frequently the hungry the Trout will rise freely. This period provides ‘us’ (fisherman) with the best opportunity to tempt them.
As the season progresses the bigger fish become meat eaters, feeding on smaller fish they become more difficult to tempt during the day.
Good sport can still be had throughout the summer months with the average sized Trout employing stealthy French/Euro Nymphing tactics. This devastating technique is very straight-forward and your guides can teach this within minutes, regardless of having any fly fishing experience at all.
There are a number of productive rivers not far from Edinburgh and our guides will use their knowledge to put you on the best river to suit the current conditions and your experience.
Grayling are a frequent by-catch when fishing these stunning lowland rivers. They often provide sport when the Trout are not so obliging. They make a very welcome addition and a worthy target in their own right.
Trout Fishing on the Iconic Loch Leven.
Leven is one of Scotland’s most prestigious lochs and only a short drive north from Edinburgh. It offers the serious Trout angler a challenging, traditional Loch fishing experience in Scotland.
Spring and Fall is best for daytime fishing where traditional Scottish wet fly fishing and nymphing can work well when there is little wind or when the buzzer hatches are in full swing. We use a mixture of floating and sinking line tactics during these periods.
In the summer evening sessions are often more productive. This period can be hit or miss, but if we get the correct conditions the Loch can come alive with rising Trout!
Blessed with history and an array of wildlife, Leven is a national nature reserve & site of special scientific interest. Not to mention home to some outstanding Trout fishing on its day!
Loch Leven has some of the richest feeding of any loch in the country and produces specimen Trout approaching 10lbs in weight every season. It is a national treasure in our eyes and one of the best Trout Fishing lochs in Scotland.
