Boat or bank fishing on a 29-acre loch stocked with brown and rainbow trout (wild brown trout also present).
Glensherup trout fishery is open throughout the winter, dependent on weather, and sport at times can be good.

Availability in 2018
UPDATE: From Wednesday 2 May 2018, PDAA members can fish Glensherup five days per week, Monday to Friday inclusive (subject to availability). The fee is still £15 for a single angler, and £20 for two anglers (only one needs to be a PDAA member).
The procedure for reserving a place is:
- 1. Telephone Andy, the fishery manager (tel 01259 781631), to check availability and make a booking.
- 2. At the fishery: One angler must show proof of PDAA membership (card and current booklet) to the fishery manager, pay the required fee, and complete the entry in the onsite record book.
Online booking is not necessary, but boats on Monday and Wednesday can still be reserved online if preferred. Even if an online booking has been made for that day, Andy is happy to let a second boat to PDAA members on Monday and Wednesday, if availability allows.
Having made an online booking, please call Andy (tel 01259 781631) to let him know if you want to fish day or evening, if you need to change your booking, or to get an alternative date if the weather prevents fishing.
Day session 9am to 4.30pm; evening 5pm till dusk. The fishery is flexible as regards our boat bookings, and day/evening bookings are interchangeable as long as Andy is given sufficient notice.
NB There has been no increase in the subsidy PDAA pay for this extra fishing; instead it is being funded by the catch limit being reduced from three fish to two per angler.
PDAA has been in discussion with the fishery manager Andy, as regards members hiring an outboard motor and battery if they do not have their own.
This facility is now in place – members can phone Andy the day before fishing, and book a motor and battery. This will be ready and waiting the next day.
A charge of £10 for the motor will be payable at Glensherup on the fishing day.
Follow the A9 to Gleneagles. Leave the A9 at the Gleneagles Junction and follow the A823 south towards Glendevon for 4 miles to reach the access road on the right.
