LANARK LOCH

Lanark Loch is a public park lake of about twenty acres next to the racecourse on the edge of Lanark. It was the first water in Scotland to receive significant stocks of "modern" mirror carp. Several hundred were introduced in the early seventies and prospered in the succeeding years. Many Scottish carp anglers grew up with Lanark as their first serious experience of the sport, and multiple catches were the order of the day. Sadly there was a massive fish kill in the mid eighties when park staff accidentally drained most of the water, and all but about thirty fish from the original population were lost. The SCG has invested heavily in new stock for Lanark Loch over the years. Lanark also has tench - including some specimens in excess of 6lb - and a lage head of roach to specimen sizes, perch and few pike. ALL FISH TO BE RETURNED TO WATER ALIVE, CATCH & RELEASE ONLY

 

Only SCG members & Lanark only season ticket holders are allowed to night fish.
