Tinto Trout Fishery Hot
Both Lochs are on average 5 acres in size each and approximately 26ft to 35ft deep at the deepest point. Loch Cleugh sits at 1020 feet, and Loch Lyoch sits at 960 feet above sea level. Both lochs are decommissioned reservoirs that were built in late 1880s and 1910 to supply Lanark and the surrounding area with their drinking water. Due to the Geology surrounding the lochs and their altitude above the agricultural line, the water is very clean and clear supplying a wonderful environment for wild stocks of brown trout and stocked rainbow trout to flourish and grow.
The Fishery provides excellent top of the water fishing with a diverse fly life, offering the angler a challenge in matching the natural hatch. The lochs are also home to other wild life, some who are resident and other passing through such as dippers, snipe, grouse, swallows, sparrow hawk, cuckoo, great crested wood pecker, water hens, various wag tails, martins, curlews,ducks, oyster catchers, swans, wild geese, and even a lost gannet at one point. Float tubing is welcome at there own risk.
