Close Season

Harlaw and Threipmuir are now closed, no fishing is allowed on either reservoir. We open again on the 1st of April 2020.

Here's Malleny AA club secretary, Alan Holbrook, almost breaking into a full blow grin after catching this beautiful rainbow trout from just off the end of the Harlaw dam wall. Alan was fishing a floating line, the fish taking a perl back diawl bach. The fish was 9 to 10lb and made a great account of itself before being safely returned. Thanks to Scotty Abbott for the picture.

Day permits are available for the reservoirs at £25. This covers fishing from 8am to an hour after dusk (latest 11pm) - stay all day or fish a 'split shift'. You can catch and release all the fish you like on barbless hooks and take up to four home.
