Soulseat Loch is a lovely 72 acre loch set in green farmland and trees not far from Stranraer. Situated at NX 100590, the loch can be easily accessed by taking the old military road which leaves the A75 just west of Castle Kennedy and heads towards Lochans. Within a km, you will reach the loch, situated on the left hand side of the road shortly after Loch Magillie.
The water is stocked 4-5 times a year with hard fighting rainbow trout up to six pounds in weight. Overwintered fish are a bar of silver. This is a great water for the elderly and not so able as it is easy walking and wading, however wading is not necessary for the most part.
A day ticket, which can be purchased from Sports Shop in Stranraer and Meadowsweet at Soulseat, permits anglers to bank fish between Soulseat Loch and the four waters (Magillie, Dindinnie, Knockquassen and Penwhirn). Prices are: Senior and youth tickets: £18/day or £80/week; OAP: £16/day or £60/week; Junior (under 17s): £10/day or £50/week; Evening: £12/day with a 1 fish limit.
Restrictions apply only to the bag limit set at two fish per day across the entire spread of waters, except with evening tickets which is a 1 fish limit. Catch and release is encouraged. Anglers should cease fishing once they have reached their two fish limit for the day. Only one rod may be used which must be hand held at all times.
Fly, spinning and natural bait are allowed. Worms, maggots and powerbait are popular with bait anglers. Lures, bobs and buzzers all catch fish for the fly fisherman and an assortment of mepps and toby's will catch whilst spinning. Details of returns should be given to the sports shop in Stranraer.
