Coarse fish present in Loch Awe include Pike, Perch, Roach and eels, and some very good perch can be caught whilst spinning or bait fishing in the summer.
However, it is the Pike fishing that attracts anglers from all over the world, with 30lb+ fish caught every season, and 20lb+ fish caught on a regular basis.
Fishing for these Pike during the summer months using lures, dead baits and fly can offer tremendous sport, though some anglers fish for them throughout the season often picking up very good fish on dead baits during the colder months of the year.
Unlike the other coarse fish, there is no close season for Pike in Loch Awe.
Though most anglers come to Loch Awe for the trout and pike fishing, there is also the potential opportunity to catch other less targeted species such as Arctic Char in the deeper water.
There is also a chance of catching a salmon or sea trout, usually whilst trolling for ferox trout or pike.
