Loch Lomond

Loch Lomond


Has an interesting biology because it has two distinct environments. The northern half of the loch is a typical glacial formed, deep narrow highland loch while the southern end is shallow and more akin to a typical lowland loch. The southern environment suites coarse fish. There are roach, dace, rudd, pike and perch. There are also powan which you should return immediately if you catch them as they are very much an endangered species.

Loch Lomond is probably one of the best pike fishing venues anywhere. The loch is big, really big and you should search around for information about where to fish rather than waste your time plodding about. Someone once told me there were good pike near Balmaha, then I had a look and realised that I might as well have been told that there are lots of haddock in the North Sea!

Balmaha is recommended as well as the area around Luss. Endrick Mouth where the monster pike skull was found is also a hot spot. There is excellent fishing in late spring when the coarse fish run up the Endrick to spawn.

Live bait is not allowed as in the past people have used ruffe which have have escaped or been dumped in he loch at the end of a fishing session and multiplied becoming a serious problem because they eat the eggs of native species of fish.
