High Dam Trout Fishery


Glasgow, Scotland, United Kingdom

Fishery Information

Located a half mile outside of Eaglesham, High Dam is a reservoir that spans 3.5 acres. Even though it has a dam wall, it is one of the most natural dams in Scotland for fishing. Its 8-foot depth means steady action right at the water’s surface. Because of its proximity to fields and natural weed beds, the body of water always has a healthy population of fly life.

The fishery continued to operate until shortly after World War II, at which point it was restocked with brown trout from Loch Leven around the year 1960. Following a hiatus of ten years, the fishery was reopened in June of 2009, and since then, it has been heavily stocked with hard-fighting, fully-finned rainbows and blues.
