It's Thursday, May 28 and welcome to the St.Winnoch Angling Club Home Page. The purpose of this site is to let people know about the excellent fishing in and around Lochwinnoch and also to show what club members have been up to.
The area in and around the village of Lochwinnoch provides the angler with a wide variety of sport. Since 1927 the St.Winnoch Angling Club has provided members and visitors access to several waters within the local area at a very reasonable price.

Castle Semple Loch
Excellent coarse fishing with pike to 20lb+, roach, perch and eel. Salmon and sea-trout are also present in the loch as they pass through en route to the River Calder. Facilities include a club boat for use by any club member and any legal angling method is allowed here subject to club rules.
Barr Loch
Offering the same species as Castle Semple Loch this water is situated within a R.S.P.B. managed nature reserve and the number of rods is limited to eight at any one time. Members only, no day tickets available.
River Calder
Around 5 miles fishing for wild brown trout in the scenic Calder Glen. Salmon have been returning to the river in increasing numbers and a planned fish pass at Bridgend Falls should ensure a healthy stock of migratory fish for the future.
