RSPB Lochs. Fishing season 1st April to 5th October. Three ‘clear rest days’ between angling days.
Grid Reference: 975 474
Bag Limit: All fish to be taken and accurate lengths recorded.
Leave the A897 at Grid reference 903485 (Forsinain) and follow the forestry track, a 4×4 or vehicle with high clearance is required to negotiate the bumpy track, to park at 974 459. Head North over wet ground for a distance of 1.2km to reach the boat in the SW corner of the loch which is free to use for all members. Club members have reduced the numbers of fish in this loch which has significantly improved the fishing and the habitat. Cloiche is a delightful loch and has a good head of bright, spirited, free rising fish in the 10-12oz bracket. Bigger fish of 1lb have been caught close to the bank, no doubt feeding on the numerous sticklebacks in the loch. Boat and bank both yield good catches, though care is needed when wading over rocky patches on the east side. All fish caught must be removed and lengths from the tip of nose to the fork in the tail accurately recorded and a catch return completed.
