Loch Awe has always been famous for its wild brown trout, having broken the British rod-caught record four times over the last decade. It is, however, its reputation for good mixed bags of 8oz – 3lb trout that still attracts the majority of anglers. Whether novice or purist, young or old, Loch Awe has a great deal to offer both game and coarse fishermen. Permits for trout, coarse and pike fishing on Loch Awe can also be purchased. Boat hire is available at nearby Ardbrecknish.
The mainland coastline of Argyll is almost 350 miles long. It offers numerous opportunities for fishing and plenty of variety. Boat charters are available from Oban.
