Built in 1844, Harelaw is a large shallow reservoir, extending to 102 acres and includes over 3 miles of superb wading banks, 4 dam walls, and three islands. An averaging depth of 5-9 feet ensures that fish can be found virtually anywhere on the fishery, with a maximum of 13ft of water. Harelaw’s moorland setting is also home to a variety of birds and wildlife.
Harelaw offers the boat or bank anglers some of the best top of the water fishing anywhere in Scotland. There are three islands and many shallow bays and peninsulas offering quality drifts and wading from both boat and bank. Harelaw is almost 600ft above sea level and fishing is best with a South Westerly wind with slightly overcast skies or into sunset. The Fishery is stocked weekly with grade 1 Rainbows and Blues from 2Ib upwards. A large head of natural wild brown trout are also present – caught in 2008 to over 7lbs and again in February 2009 to nearly 8lbs.
