Haddo Trout Fishery
Located at Keithfield, the Haddo Trout Fishery was opened in early 2002 by Mike Barrio. The loch is stocked regularly with premium quality trout, and can be fished either from traditional rowing boats or float tubes using barbless or de-barbed flies. It generally operates on a catch and release basis, with no bag limits, though a rainbow trout in excellent condition could be kept for eating at the angler’s discretion. The rules of the Fishery can be read here.
The largest rainbow trout to be caught on the Fishery weighed in at 18lbs 12oz, and the record for most trout caught and released in a 4 hour session is 51.
The fishery is open daily from 9:30. Session prices for 2011 are as follows:
Session duration (hours)
Price per angler (£)
|Up to 4||15.00|
