We are proud of our fishery - limited to 120 members - the club consists of enthusiastic fishermen of all skill levels who share a passion for fly fishing. Brown Trout and coarse fish are protected and should be returned and Rainbow Trout are subject to a three fish bag limit. We stock with the best quality fish we can find and fish of all sizes can be caught so there is plenty of room for surprises!  The club is a mutual organisation and all surpluses are reinvested in the club.


Our lake is a wonderful combination of mature trees bordering a shallow but productive fishery. Over the years, the lake has been stocked with various species of fish. Having been left undisturbed for the last two years, the lake now has a healthy stock of semi-wild fish complementing our own stocked rainbow trout. Fishers will come across brown trout and coarse fish - all of which must be returned.

Walkers and visitors are always welcome so long as dogs are kept on lead and out of the water. There is a delightful walk around the lake for visitors to enjoy. Please beware of fishers casting their lines and let them know when you approach!

There is a huge variety of wildlife at Pitfour ranging from otters to roe deer and a plethora of bird life.

The Pitfour Estate dates from 1700 and was once called the 'Blenheim of Buchan'.

Please note day tickets are not available for Pitfour Lake

The Watson Cup Competition Results 2018

Once again we had a great response to the competition this year with twenty five competitors.
Due to the high number we decided to hold two heats and a final and these were organised by Gerry Linklater. The top six anglers from each heat qualified for the final which was held on 29th September.

The results of the final are as follows: Gerry Linktaker - 8 fish
Aurimas Nausedas - 6 fish
Allan Leel - 4 Fish

Charlie McPherson also caught four fish but as Allan caught his first fish before Charlie, Third place goes to Allan. Allan's first fish was the first fish of the day with his first cast so he also won the sweeper.

Thanks to Gerry for organising the competition and a big thank you to all the competitors who made all three days a huge success.

Many thanks
