The Lanrick Water


Lanrick, Nr Doune, Perthshire FK16 6HJ, United Kingdom

Fishery Information

The Lanrick water, located on the river Teith between Doune and Callander, has a total length of 3.5 miles, with single bank fishing available for 2 miles and double bank fishing available for 1.5 miles. In the midst of the gorgeous woodland and parkland environment are sixteen pools.

The river is known for its typical spring flow, which begins on opening day and continues through the spectacular sea trout run between March and July, which is joined by a grilse run that is less predictable. From the end of August all the way until the end of the season in October, an outstanding autumn run can be expected.

The uppermost portions of the Upper Beat are at the waterfall located above Johnny Cairns Pool. It is right bank only, with the Pulpit Pool being the lowest. The Cambusmore Estate provides fishing on the other bank.

The Laundry Pool at the Lower Beat is below Pulpit and the lowest. The Lower Beat is a single bank for The Laundry and The Gean Tree pools only then double bank from Castle Flats to the Pool below the Deanston Weir.

What size do the fish go to?

The Teith is on record for being home to large fish that weigh more over 20 pounds and even some that weigh more than 30 pounds.

What tactics work well?

For most of the year, a 15ft fly rod is appropriate. However, when the water level is low, smaller rods are more appropriate.

What facilities are on site?

An experienced resident ghillie to provide help and information is available. Guests will also benefit tremendously from the availability of an all-terrain vehicle, which makes navigating the river much less difficult. In addition, the ghillie will provide beginners with casting instruction. A wonderful cabin with a dining table, a kettle, and a wood burning heater overlooks the Castle Flats Pool. It also contains a toilet.

Is parking available?

Yes, parking is available.
