That's an interesting question, and one that may be slightly controversial, with there being at least small amounts of stocked fish in the ones mentioned, i realise that Loch Leven have reverted to a natural brown trout fishery program, Lochy has been known to produce rainbows, even Loch Tay has some huge escapee rainbows (albeit not both stocked intentionally).

You may find that most people, (myself included) have primarily fished the Rivers Tay or Lochy for Salmon and on such days, landing a brown could be construed as a nuisance (on hindsight though) that was certainly the wrong way of thinking.

Sadly, on the Lochy at least, Brown Trout are regarded as predators of the smolt program that was undetaken by the restoration program near Glenfinnan and was run with the aid of Marine Harvest.

I always suspected for real wild brown trout fishing (rightly or wrongly) one had to head further afield possibly as far as Sutherland Orkney, shetlands etc.

I don't believe i can honestly say, hand on heart i am aware of fishing three really productive wild brown trout venues, although there are a few not too far from me, i don't feel they are what one may describe as 'prime' fishing destinations, however that said it will be interesting to read if there are some venues closer to home than i thought.

Good question diehard81

Best regards
Jim

Cheers jim, im curious for a range of anglers opinion as we well know, a lot of fisheries are reverting to bows as they are cheaper n easier to maintain in prime waters. Its a shame that we dont have more nautral brown waters available to the purists.

Upper River Tees - Prolific wild brown trout water
River Dart - As near to proper wilderness fishing as you can get in England
Rivers Colne and Holme West Yorkshire - Wild brownies and Grayling cheap as chips and on my doortstep!

Cheers
