Fishing is strictly "fly only"

Some information about the fishing...

Malleny Angling Association hold the bank fishing rights to
Harlaw reservoir and to the north bank of Threipmuir reservoir -
from the fishing hut to the west, eastwards to the Black Springs,
a distance of approximately 1.5 miles.
The reservoirs lie close together in the Pentland Hills and are about
1 mile south of Balerno near Edinburgh.

The Association was formed in 2001 to manage this fishery under a lease
from Rosebery Estates. The Association has 100 members with an
additional 10 season permit holders.
Day permits are available to visiting anglers and are obtainable
from the Post Office, 3 Main Street, Balerno.

Harlaw reservoir is stocked every 2 weeks with Rainbow trout at an
average weight of 1.5 lbs although larger fish are commonly caught!
Threipmuir reservoir is stocked with Brown trout at 12" to 14" but
again larger specimens can catch out the unwary.

The fishing season for both waters starts on the 1st April each year
and closes on Threipmuir on the 30th September and on Harlaw
on the 31st October.
