Pitlochry Angling Club

Looking down from Pitlochry Dam Portnacraig Beat

Pitlochry Angling Club has salmon fishings directly below Pitlochry Dam (Portnacraig Beat) and on the Atholl Estates water downstream from Moulinearn to Ballinluig and the Ruan Ruarie Beat of the River Garry.

Day tickets are available for the club’s waters.  The stretch below the dam is very popular. Advanced booking recommended.

The club has the trout and grayling fishings on the Middle Tummel from Clunie Dam (Loch Tummel) to Pitlochry Dam and on the Lower Tummel all the way from Pitlochry Dam to Ballinluig.

The club also has fishings on two hill lochs Loch Bhac and Loch Kinardochy.

Loch Bhac lies in commercially afforested hills above Loch Tummel with extensive views north across the valley of the River Garry to the Bheinn a Ghlo mountains. Access to this very attractive 12 ha stocked fishery, which lies on a limestone outcrop, is along a forestry track off the B8019 which runs along the north shore of Loch Tummel. The loch is regularly stocked with rainbow trout and also has a resident population of feisty brown trout.

Loch Kinardochy lies in the hills between Aberfeldy and Tummel Bridge with wonderful views over to Schiehallion, and the valleys of Loch Rannoch and Loch Tummel.  The ruined lime kilns above the loch give a clue to its rich biodiversity.  Access by car is easy with an anglers’ parking area conveniently provided just off the main road. The brown trout here are usually in excellent condition bright and hard fighting.

Permits are available online from the club’s website or from Quales of Pitlochry.

    If you can get on it the pool below the Pitlochry Dam is an outstanding holding pool. Its not expensive and you will almost certainly see fish.
