The fisheries are situated in a beautiful Angus glen and are run by the Lintrathen Angling Club. Lintrathen, which is boat fishing only, has twenty two boats, including two wheely boats for the disabled and is stocked on a regular base with both brown and rainbow trout. Surrounded by trees it is a natural habitat for wildlife including deer and ospreys and Lintrathen gives the angler a feeling of peace and tranquillity as well as the excitement of catching quality fish. The Backwater, situated higher up the glen gives the purist a chance to fly fish the banks for wonderful wild brown trout with an average weight of eight ounces. Both lochs are regularly visited by clubs and individual anglers from the furthest points in the country and Lintrathen has been a venue for the Commonwealth Championship.

Stocking. This is done on a regular bases on Lintrathen, with the Backwater being left to natural wild brownies.

Facilities. There is a boathouse and toilets, including toilets for the disabled and wheely boats are available at Lintrathen. There is a fishing hut and toilets at Backwater.
