Trout Fly Fishing in Scotland
Kingennie Fishings is delighted to announce following the First Ministers recent update, we will be open from 8am on Friday the 29th May. We have been working hard to ensure our fishery aligns with the guidelines laid out for Phase 1 easing of the lockdown restrictions.
There are few better pastimes than fly fishing for trout, and few better places for it than the fishing pools of Kingennie Fishings, near Dundee, Scotland.
Kingennie has trout fishing (rainbow, blue, brown), with bait and fly-fishing on five well-stocked pools year-round. Catches vary according to the season and pool, from fighting trout of 1lb to 'old and cunning' fish of over 15lbs. We also have coarse fishing on our Blawearie Basin pool, which holds a variety of perch over 3lb and roach over 2lb. The pools have fishing piers and some grass banking. Kingennie Fishings attracts around 10,000 anglers each year. Stocking takes place weekly.
