Close Season

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

I think its fair to say that the water levels over the last few months have presented some considerable challenges to fishing at Harlaw and Threipmuir. Although Malleny Angling have no control of the levels, rest assured that we are actively addressing the issue and working towards safeguarding the future of our sport and the diverse opportunities and environmental benefits that affords residents and visitors alike.

Many of us have watched with almost morbid fascination as the levels have dropped and dropped again over the summer. The banks have been treacherous, especially for walkers trying to shortcut a route around Threipmuir and the emergency services have been involved in at least one major rescue. Fortunately, to the best of my knowledge, anglers have avoided any major incident. Threipmuir is now at a much higher level and Harlaw is rapidly rising.
