I was think myabe I would go coarse fishing in Loch Lomond this weekend (sunday) and maybe throw a few baits in the estuary at gourock/wemyss bay and on the other side, around the leven area.

does anybody know the law for fishing here, what baits, good marks etc?

if you fish on the leven estuary side,if you catch any sea trout you must return them , or run the risk of prosecution , the balliffs may ask you for a permit but if your fishing for flatties thats fine ,even if you have a permit you cant take a sea trout till 1st may ,

You must have some cast or a teleporter to fish loch Lomond and throw a bait in the estuary at Gourock. anyway - small codling, saithe pollock and the odd flatty at Gourock. Nowt at Wemyss bay. Flatties around the Leven area.

Cheers, Jon

i thought it was pretty obvious that I was meant I would be moving to the other side and not trying to cast there.

zero out of 100 for trying to be funny.

leadhead, you dont need a permit for coarse fishing in loch lomond, not sure about loch awe. but im not going there anyway.

I think the permit situation on that link is left a bit vague. I do not think you need a permit to fish for coarse fish in Scotland.

theres no need for a permit although some species are protected and must be put back in the water with as little fuss and damage as possible. I think Ruffe come under this.

WITHOUT WISHING TO APPEAR RUDE, OR JUDGEMENTAL, IT IS IMPORTANT, THAT THE FOLLOWING COMMENTS ARE TAKEN ONBOARD.

YOU WILL FIND THIS QUOTED INFO TO BE WRONG, IN EVERY REGARD, OTHER THAN THE REFERENCE TO PROTECTED SPECIES, OF WHICH THE RUFFE IS CERTAINLY NOT ONE, CONSTITUTING A MAJOR MENACE TO ALL OTHER SPECIES DUE TO EXPLOSIONS IN NUMBERS, AND SEVERE EGG PREDATION UPON OTHER SPECIES.

CHECK OUT ANY SCIENTIFIC LITERATURE ON LOCH LOMOND, AND YOU WILL REALISE THE DEPTH OF FEELING DIRECTED AGAINST THE INTRODUCTION OF RUFFE TO THE CATCHMENT.

A ROD LICENCE TYPE OF ARRANGEMENT HAS BEEN INTRODUCED RECENTLY, IN ORDER TO CONTROL FISHING FOR ALL AND ANY SPECIES WITHIN THE LOCH AND SURROUNDS.

Hiya,

It was always the case that you DID need a permit to fish Loch Lomond even for Coarse fish, however given the Permit was free the Bailiffs didn't normally pursue the matter any further if you didn't have one.

Species wise , the Ruff as Seafarer has pointed out is anything but protected, however the Powan IS protected.

The ruffe is one of the introduced or "alien "species that has been introduced to Loch Lomond and is endangering the powan...........the native and now endangered species.
Google "alien species in Loch Lomond"
Ah well, I am wrong about the permits.you live and learn.

HI DAVY,

THANKS FOR THE SUPPORT.

THERE IS NOW A CHARGE, EVEN FOR COARSE ANGLING, WHICH IS AIMED AT WEEDING OUT THE DESPOILERS, WHO FISH FOR GAIN, TROPHIES, OR OTHER HANGABLE OFFENCES.

CHEERS,

S.
