We are a family run enterprise that aims to provide anglers from around the central Scotland area with high quality fly and bait trout fishing in a relaxed, friendly and peaceful environment. Over 600 feet above sea level the unique moorland setting of Avon Trout Fishery provides magnificent views overlooking the Trossachs and Ochil Hills and is home to a variety of birds and wildlife.
Avon Trout Fishery has a choice of two spring fed ponds which anglers can choose to fish from. The top pond spans 1.1 acres and the smaller pond at the bottom of the farm covers 0.5 acres. Both ponds are stocked on a daily basis with top quality Rainbow Trout & Blue Trout weighing from 2Lb to a massive 8Lb that are kept on the farm in large holding tanks. The shallow nature of both ponds makes them ideal for fly and bait trout fishing and fish can be found virtually anywhere in either pond on the Fishery.
