Recently re-branded, the Green Hotel Golf & Leisure Resort, have increased and improved their fishing facilities on Loch Leven. Anglers can now book fishing on the FishPal website.
The new fishing season starts on Loch Leven on Saturday 2nd April and we are all hopeful that the loch will continue to fish as encouragingly as it did last season.
Certainly, we saw more fish in the burns at the back end of last year than we have for many a year which hopefully augurs well for the future. Also, with the loch being covered by ice from mid December through to mid February, the stock of brown trout should have benefitted for the second year running from being kept safe from their major predator, the cormorant, during the period when cormorant numbers would normally be at a peak.
The best fish of the season so far was caught on Friday just off the sluices using a buzzer – it was carefully returned and estimated to be a ‘comfortable’ 6 lbs. Quite a few fish in the 3½ to 4½lb class have been reported this past week, along with the more usual 1 lb to 2 lbs ‘brownies’. Read more of the fishing report
Anglers will no doubt be delighted to hear that we have included a special Fisherman’s Breakfast on the menu comprising bacon, sausage, 2 fried eggs, haggis, mushrooms, baked beans, fried bread, toast and freshly brewed tea or coffee (we can’t fit any more on the plate!!) – all for £6.00. What a perfect way to start your fishing day!
We are also offering a range of packed lunch options made especially for anglers.
Anglers wishing to have lunch at the fishery, the Resort’s Boathouse Bistro, located down by the pier on the banks of Loch Leven, has re-opened following an extensive makeover. Whilst the internal layout of the Bistro has been re-jigged and a completely new menu put in place, the most striking change has been out the front where an extensive area of decking has been put down.
