The perfect fishing retreat...

Welcome to Glenquicken Farm Trout Fishery, a 4.5 acre lochan situated amongst magnificent scenery in the shadow of Cairnsmore of Fleet, Newton Stewart, Dumfries and Galloway. 

The water for Glenquicken lochan is fed from our own burn and also from the three natural springs which are now in the centre of the lochan. This mixture allows the fish to experience the "spate" of the burn flowing into the lochan (the burn can rise to fill the inlet pipe in an hour during heavy rain) and also, when the burn is low, to have a very adequate supply of neutral Ph water from the springs that rise in the granite below and are filtered through the sand and gravel that Glenquicken was once famous for.

The lochan has varying depths of water (the deepest is over 30ft while, at its shallowest, it's only 4ft) with an average depth of 16ft. The bed of the lochan consists of rock, sand and gravel, peat and clay and it has been dug out and left in ridges, thus creating different depths. This allows the trout to experience a more natural environment and also promotes a variety of natural insect food at different depths and allows you, the angler, more variation in choice of flies and lines to use.

We are a registered "Troutmasters" fishery. This popular national competition is sponsored by Trout Fisherman magazine and our monthly winning fish is normally in excess of 14lb; the largest fish caught to date is a rainbow trout of 24lb 5 oz.

The lochan is well stocked with rainbow trout, the smallest being 2lb and the largest well into double figures (with a few real monsters). Enough of these big fish are stocked to ensure you have a fair chance of catching one. The overall stocking of the lochan is no less than 150 fish per acre.

We have a comfortable Fishing "Kabin" on site where tea, coffee and a selection of hot food are available to order. A range of flies (hand-tied by my wife and son) and leaders, etc., can also be purchased.

Beginners are welcome and if you require tuition, this can normally be arranged at a modest cost per hour (time permitting) and needs to be booked in advance.

Glenquicken Lochan is well stocked with Rainbow Trout.

Rods, reels and nets are available for hire if required. We can now offer 1.5 miles of singlebank fishing on the Palnure; this local water, being partly tidal, boasts 10 pools that hold abundant numbers of seatrout and salmon when conditions allow. All legal methods are allowed (no shrimp) and worming the pools by use of a float or trotting the streams can be as productive a way as any to tempt the migrant inhabitants.
