Fishing

Bring your own fishing rods or hire some from  Tools and Tackle in Ballachulish.  They are the premier Fishing Tackle shop in Lochaber and sell branded tackle including Shakespear, Abu Garcia, Mitchell, Okuma, Caledonian Fly, Tazmainian Devil, and lots more. If it is rods, reels, spinners, tobbies, line, feathers, weights, flys, nets, they stock them all and if they do not they try their best to get them for you.

Rod hire is also available for both Children and Adults alike and their staff have all the local knowledge to ensure you get that big catch and have a great day out.

Fishing is free in the loch but you should stay away from where the rivers enter it.
