River Leven Angling AC

I have known this river since the time you could smell it a hundred yards before you saw it, a filthy sewer. Then it started to clean up as pollution was controlled in the 1950s to 60s. A friend and I shared the catch of the first salmon for generations fishing at Kirklands Dam (washed away in a 1960s flood). Today the Leven has an A2 clasification for water purity and some 50 salmon a year are caught. Now under new management by the River Leven Angling Club I wish them well in reviving this great wee river. My granddad would be chuffed for when he fished the Ore 100 years ago the fishing was very good and I am sure it and the Leven can be great once more.

This river was, like the Leven, a shocker until the 1960's. destroyed by the coal mining indusrty. It gradually recovered and as the out pourings from the old coal measures have been dealt with the river flows clear through flowing weed beds in parts from Loch Ore down to Thornton after which it takes on a more streamy character. I remember the stretch above the meetings with the Lochty Burn was very productive, often wonder what it is like now. I am assumig the River Leven AC have this too, daft if they haven't.

Loch Awe Angling Improvement Association

Was set up to manage the fishing on Loch Awe and Loch Avich. Working closely with the Argyll Fisheries Trust they are responsible for the great improvements in the loch which has seen it produce 4 British Record wild brown trout in recent years. Awe undoubtedly has a British record pike in it yet to be caught and there are escapee rainbows that have flourished in the loch to become serious contenders in the big fish stakes.
