Glen Faba is situated in what can only be described as a very sensitive area being unique due to unusual complexities of access to the Lake, the ownership of the surrounding land and the need to protect and develop the biodiversity of the site as a whole.
Therefore it is imperative that as this fishery is opened for angling there are a number of stipulations put in place to protect the lakes integrity, flora and fauna, and prevent any angling associated use of the lake offending neighbouring residents and landowners.
In view of this it has become necessary to ensure all potential members formally apply to the Fisheries in writing whereby all applications will be assessed.
Glen Faba is a mature gravel pit of 67 acres in size. The lake is a maze of gravel bars, islands, points and bays with silty depths of 25 to over 30ft in many places, hence location is the key to catching and currently there are no designated swims.
Once located the fish are not always difficult to catch. However this lake has never been officially stocked and the exceptionally low stock levels in such a naturally rich waterhas led to high growth rates.
Glen Faba holds a small number of Carp, however these are predominantly in the 30 - 40lb+ size range.
For the Carp, find features such as bars, plateaus, holes in weed beds and gullies. The north section is very under-fished and could be worth persevering with.
This water is a conservation area and fish are frequently seen in the margins of the numerous secluded bays. The water suits the mobile angler as the low stocking level means that fish location is paramount.
There is a limit of four rods per angler. The 'Out of Bounds' areas are not to be fished without exception. DO NOT under any circumstances park across any gates or entrances.
Glen Faba is controlled as a limited member Day/Night Season Permit fishery. A waiting list is in operation for this fishery. For details on permit availability see the News page on this site.
