About this water

Lake
Brown trout
OS Grid Ref: HY 25332 16440
Latitude: 59.0284551
Longitude: -3.3024614

This very small water which lies between Skaill and Harray can also be regarded as capable of producing specimens fish under 2lb should be returned to achieve their full potential weight.
One reason for the rapid growth rates of the trout in Clumly is the vast amount of Corixa and Sticklebacks therein and the choice of fly pattern should reflect this. The loch cannot withstand heavy fishing pressure and as the season progresses the fish become increasingly difficult to locate and it is generally felt that they take refuge in the large weed beds and are therefore uncatchable.
