There is an abundance of loch trout fishing on Tayside with the majority of the stocked fish being rainbow, but there are wild brown trout waters that supplement their numbers with stocked brown trout. This type of trout fishing is truly world class and not to be missed by any visiting angler.
Most of the main commercially stocked fisheries on Tayside are fly fishing only, but there are a few that allow bait fishing as well. If you trout fish at home, then your own tackle will probably be perfectly adequate. There are obviously special flies etc which are popular on a specific water, but they are not essential. Several commercially stocked fisheries have a tackle shop on site, which will be able to supply local patterns and local advice is freely given.
Actual tactics depend on the time of year and weather conditions and can vary from dry fly and nymph fishing to deep sunk lures. A floating and intermediate fly line will cover the majority of situations.
