Close Season

Harlaw and Threipmuir are now closed, no fishing is allowed on either reservoir. We open again on the 1st of April 2019.

Hear details of our Hooked on Harlaw open day as reported by Nigel Duncan for Crystal FM (107.4FM).

Some nice brown trout for a group of visiting American anglers fishing Threipmuir on an Orvis guided day. Orvis have a shop with fly fishing section a few miles from the reservoir in Edinburgh city centre. Thanks to Lee Currie, Orvis guide, for sending in the photos.


After a major refurbishment Balerno Post Office is now open again and available to sell day permits. Formerly known as The Letter Box Bistro, look for Carlyle's Bar and Kitchen in the same location on Main Street, Balerno. As well as the Post Office counter, Carlyle's Bar and Kitchen, as the name suggests, also offer food and drink. See their new website to book a table. Thanks all at Carlyle's Bar and Kitchen for their continued investment in Balerno.

A few pictures from the last week or so. Lots of fly life now on the reservoir and the trout feeding well. Great time of year to visit. In the pictures we've got Rainbow, Blue and Brown trout. Thanks to Eddie Wells, GP Goh and Rob Horsfield for the pictures.
