The boat mooring is half way down the west side of the loch. This is a good starting point if you can drift in a North-easterly direction toward, and into the narrow bay (past the large boulder) in the North-east corner, this can be a very productive area. Probably the most regularly fished area by both bank and boat anglers is the lower section of the loch where it connects with Loch nam Falcag. The points, bays and headlands on the East side of this section of Loch na Craoibhe are the most productive on the loch. However, trout can be taken all over the loch in varying weather conditions. Trout average 10-12oz, with a day’s fishing yielding 8-15 fish. Dabblers, Bumbles, Clan Chief, Ombudsman, and Peter Ross will all produce fish. Care should be taken during May as salmon smolts seem to congregate in the loch, especially in the North-east corner, before they migrate downstream to the sea at Laxay.
