Boat or bank fishing on a 29-acre loch stocked with brown and rainbow trout (wild brown trout also present).
Glensherup trout fishery is open throughout the winter, dependent on weather, and sport at times can be good.

Availability in 2018
1 Jan to 31 Mar 2018: One boat (up to two rods) available Monday and Wednesday. There is also a Friday (evening) boat when daylight permits.
The fishery has been extremely flexible as regards our boat bookings, and day/evening bookings are interchangeable as long as Andy, the fishery manager, is given sufficient notice (phone 01259 781631).
Permits for the Monday and Wednesday boats are available from PD Malloch's, with a fee of £10 to be paid by the member when booking. One non-PDAA guest can be taken along at £5 extra charge. Three fish limit per angler. Day session 9am to 4.30pm; evening 5pm till dusk. The Friday boat can be booked online.
From 1 April 2018: Monday and Wednesday boats will be bookable online. The fee will increase to £15 for a single angler, and £20 for two anglers, and will be payable online. Once booked, call Andy (tel 01259 781631) to let him know if you want to fish day or evening, if you need to change your booking, or to get an alternative date if the weather prevents fishing.
PDAA has been in discussion with the fishery manager Andy, as regards members hiring an outboard motor and battery if they do not have their own.
This facility is now in place – members can phone Andy the day before fishing, and book a motor and battery. This will be ready and waiting the next day.
A charge of £10 for the motor will be payable at Glensherup on the fishing day (PD Malloch's are not involved, apart from paying the boat booking fee).
As mentioned before, the fishery manager is extremely flexible, so give him a call if you wish to fish on different days to Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and if boats are available this can be arranged.
