Loch long is a sea
loch which runs north from the Firth of Clyde to its head at the
village of Arrochar. It should be noted if any migratory fish are
caught such as Salmon or Sea Trout, it is illegal to land them. They
should be immediately returned to the sea. It is not uncommon
however to be harangued by do-gooders who may claim that you cannot
fish there. This is incorrect. You can fish with bait or with
spinners from the shore or on a boat, as long as you return any
migratory fish as mentioned above.
There is the usual
good fishing you might expect in a sea loch, cod, whiting, plaice,
mackerel, skate, wrasse, pollack, spurdog, and many other species.
The Loch provides good fishing
from both the shore and from boats.
