Rod & Creel
The home of Avonbank Fishing Club
Opening date for season 2016 is Saturday 27th February. Closing date is Sunday 30th October.
The Reservoir is set in the heart of Central Scotland, and situated close to the village of Polmont. It consists of eight acres of superbly stocked water, which is surrounded by natural woodland and shares a boundary with the picturesque Grangemouth Golf Club.
The Reservoir is easily accessed by foot and vehicular transport and offers a full range for the discerning angler. There is ample parking space for all anglers, with disabled parking spaces close to the jetty.
The Reservoir is the home of Avonbank Fishing Club and is administered by the serving committee of the club.
The fishery is flyfishing only and caters for both bank and boat fishing.
The water is stocked primarily with fully finned hard fighting Rainbow Trout, with a sprinkling of Brown Trout to enhance the resident Brown Trout population. Some of these Brown Trout are now reaching double figures. Last year, as in previous years, hard-fighting Blue Trout were also included in the stocking programme.
The average Rainbow being caught at Millhall exceeds 2lbs in weight and double figure trout up to 15lbs in weight are regularly caught at the fishery.
The fishery is a Troutmaster water and catches are recorded and confirmed for Troutmaster Magazine
