Fishing on Loch Awe

Loch Awe Fishing
Some 25 miles long and quite narrow in places, Loch Awe forms a considerable catchment area for the many feeder burns flowing from the surrounds hills.

Water quality is high and the fish population thrive in this rich, natural feeding area.  Fish found in Loch Awe include Wild Brown Trout, Salmon, Char, Pike and Perch.  The season for all species except Pike is 15th March until 6th October.  Pike is all year round.  The best Trout fishing is March until the middle of May.  The best Pike fishing is from May until October.
