Beginner’s Loch –Hugo’s Lochan
Just below the shop, this loch was named after Robert and Rosie’s great nephew Hugo is for beginners only.  Without trees to ensure snag-free casting, it has started many fishermen onto a life long hobby.   Stocked with smaller fish, you can be assured a fun days sport.   Introductory fishing lessons are given on this loch (lessons must be booked in advance).

The two lower tidal beats of River Awe, provide some excellent if not challenging salmon fishing and a great days sport.

The Inverawe Beat
Totally unspoilt and challenging to fish in places, this 1 mile stretch, on the right bank of the River Awe with its’ deep gorges and long fast running pools, guarantees a good days sport.   Chest waders and a wading stick are a definite essential. In certain pools and lies the angler needs to spey cast.
Starting in the deep swirling pool of the Red rock, then flows over the Stepping Stones, through the Erracht and Cruive, through the rapids by the old salmon trap, into the long Grey and Clay pools.

The Lorne Beat
Fishes very well just before and after high tide, this 3/4 mile stretch, on the right bank of the River Awe is the lowest beat of the river. With long flowing pools through pasture land, it makes for easy casting and wading, though waders and wading stick essential  Starting at the top with Nicks run, just above the swing bridge and then running straight into the Dalvar, Racewall, and into both  the Upper and the Lower Crew Beg.
