Leave the A897 at Grid reference 903485 (Forsinain) follow the forestry track, a 4×4 or vehicle with high clearance is required to negotiate the bumpy track, to park at 018473. Follow what was a forest ride for a distance of 800m to reach the stile over the deer fence. The loch lies a further 400m to the north. The narrow, southern part of the loch is shallow and the least productive, otherwise the angler can cast with confidence in any part of the loch. Caol is one of the few lochs where fishing from a boat is a significant advantage. There is a good head of bright, hard fighting fish with the average size in the region of 10oz with fish up to 2lb not being uncommon.
