Stenhouse Loch Trout Fishing

Stenhouse trout fishery is a 35 acre loch which is set in a scenic rural location with spectacular views.

Sited two miles north of Burntisland on the A909, this loch is convenient for all the major urban areas of Fife and beyond, and also for the major holiday resort of Kinghorn.

For a period of 90 years, the loch was part of the Fife water supply system until it was decommissioned in the 1990's.

Wading is popular and fruitful, the best areas being the Dam Wall and the South Shore. The North Shore has seen a dramatic improvement in recent years, and is well worth a go!

The loch is full of aquatic food items for the fish which promotes a high growth rate.

Sedge larvae, midge, caenis, shrimp and snails - and hatches can be spectacular. At such times, being afloat and mobile offers the best opportunities.

Stenhouse is regularly stocked with high quality Rainbow trout weighing between two and six lbs, although double figure fish are also stocked regularly. Additionally, the loch contains native brown trout, averaging between 2 – 6 lbs. It is not unknown for a catch to be in double figures.

Fishing is by fly only, from both bank and boat. The loch is open all year round, weather conditions permitting.
