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
