Carbeth Fishery is located just outside the picturesque village of Blanefield in Scotland. Blanefield is approximately half an hours drive from Scotland’s largest city, Glasgow and half an hour drive from Stirling, one of Scotland’s most beautiful large town’s. It’s a beautiful place to fish. The fishery has 3 ponds for bait and fly fishing.
The fishery is stocked with Rainbow trout usually a minimum of 2lb in size.
Many may say that there is no skill in fishing at fisheries and although it’s true that the ponds are filled with trout you are not necessarily going to catch a fish. These fish are clever and there is plenty of sport to be enjoyed at Carbeth Fishery.
The fishery has an onsite shop where you can purchase what you require for a day’s fishing including bait. The shop also rents out fishing Rods. The on site shop also sells food including tea/coffee and even sweets to keep the children happy.
There is a ladies and gents toilet on site. They are not the finest toilets you will ever visit though but they do the ‘job’. A childrens change facility would be useful including baby change as many families enjoy to go fishing.
When we visited the fishery there was a great atmosphere. Lots of families were enjoying a relaxing day fishing and kids loving the sport of catching fish and the excitement of reeling a trout in. The ponds are depp though so children need to be carefully supervised at all times.
There is a whole variety of anglers at the fishery including those fishing for the first time to the most experienced anglers. The experienced anglers on the day we visited were more than happy to share their skills and tips.
The staff are great and ‘Jack’ and ‘Paul’ who we met on our fishing day were very helpful indeed. We were learning how to fish and they were more than happy to lead and guide and make sure that we had a great time including the children.
Carbeth fishery is a lovely place to fish and very relaxing. We loved our day there and will be going back for more.
