St Andrews AC

Established in 1898 this club has the fishing on Cameron Reservoir 4 miles from St Andrews on the A915. I have fished this loch both from bank and boat many times. I found it to be a most tranquil and natural water despite the fact that it is a former reservoir with a dam at both ends.

The loch is about 3/4 of a mile long and 250 yards wide at maximum. A shallow loch, no more than 12 feet deep, it has extensive weed beds and a fine gravel bottom providing a terrific habitat for fly life, shrimp and snails, a feast for fish which explains why the trout are are fit, plump and hard fighting.

The loch was brown trout only but I note that it is stocked with rainbows these days with browns to 1lb and rainbows to 2lb. The feeding is so good the growth rate is excellent and fish to 6 to 8lbs are taken every season, feral over wintered fish.

Fishiung is by bank and boat with 25 permits for bank and 6 boats. Please book in advance for bank and boat. You can bring your own electric motor, do watch out for those weed beds, they are hard enough to row through.

Cameron is a water where natural imitations will do you very well and it just feels right to do so. Fishing lures on Cameron would be like spinning on the Test. It's just the feel of the place from the cosy brick built fishing bothy with its coal fire and rods on the wall (I hope it hasn't changed) to the feel of the place of an evening when the trout are on the feed. Call 01334 477488 for permits. Google Map Reference 56.292342, -2.844212
