Port Glasgow Angling Club

Harelaw Trout Fishery

A good sized fishery of just over 100 acres located near Neilston with bank and boat fishing run by Port Glasgow Angling Club.

A shallow reservoir averaging 8 to 9 feet deep it has extensive areas of bank, 3 islands and 4 dams walls all offering a variety of terrains to fish in. It also offers a good range of fish including rainbows, wild browns, blues, tigers and brook trout. Very good fly life which starts early in the season makes Harewood a great dry fly and nymph fishery with buzzers, sedges, olives and emergers doing well.

The loch also has some top notch perch and some roach so by August fry imitations do well as they fish hammer the shoals.
