Woodburn Trout Fishery


Antemony Road, Milton of Campsie, Glasgow G66 8AB, Scotland, United Kingdom

Fishery Information

Located in the rolling countryside near the Campsie Fells, Woodburn Reservoir is a 12-acre fishery known for its high-quality trout fishing and breathtaking views of Central Scotland. High-quality, fiercely combative, fully-finned trout flourish in the fishery’s nutrient-dense water, which flows freely from the Campsie Hills.

The water is exceptionally clean and does not have a peaty consistency.  However, there is a profusion of weed at the end closest to the lodge. Beyond that point, there is a significant reduction for growth.

There is a series of casting platforms located on the north side of the dam, and on the south side of the dam, closer to the far end of the dam wall. The remaining portion of the fishery has concrete buttresses that stick out from the dam and serve as vantage points from which to fish.

What size do the fish go to?

The fishery only restocks with local grade “A” trout ranging in size from 2 to over 20 pounds.

What tactics work well?

Because of the steepness of the bank, it is much simpler to haul fish up and down the slope with a long-handled net.

What facilities are on site?

Shop where you can purchase tackle, flies, tea, and coffee. There is also a picnic area, boats for hire and disabled access platforms.

Is parking available?

Yes, parking is available.
