Carribber Loch - 5 Acres

The loch has a total area of about 5 acres, and you can see the approximate depths, in feet, by rolling the mouse pointer over the aerial view above.

A paved path surrounds part of the loch, and there are a number of casting platforms arranged at strategic points along the lochside, affording improved access to the deeper water in the centre of the loch, and creating better space for back-casting for those using a fly rod. A limited number of boats are also available to fly fishers.View from the dam wall looking east over Carribber Spring

Carriber Loch is unusual in that it is also possible to use bait methods to fish for trout here. Popular methods include free-lining and float fishing with traditional freshwater baits such as worm or maggot, although synthetic baits are now becoming more popular among bait fishers.

The loch carries a head of native Brown Trout, which breed in the feeder streams, but this population is supplemented by regular stocking with Brown, Blue and Rainbow trout. There is no Catch and Release available on Carribber Loch.
