Monikie Angling Club Waters

The three ponds (reservoirs) that are fished by the Monikie Angling Club were created in the mid-1800s to provide the water supply to the nearby city of Dundee. The ponds are no longer used as a water supply, but do now provide some great quality fishing.

Island Pond

At 76 acres the Island pond is the largest of the two ponds in Monikie Country Park and is stocked with both rainbow and brown trout. There are 11 boats available for hire and last season fish from this pond averaged 2 lb 1oz.
If you’re lucky you may see the local osprey demonstrating how to catch trout, or you may even be lucky enough to see our family of otters.

North Pond

At 45 acres the North pond is the smaller of the ponds in Monikie park and is stocked with rainbow trout. There are 6 boats available and last season the fish from this pond averaged 2l b 2 oz.


The Crombie reservoir (44 acres) is set within the grounds of the beautiful Crombie Country Park and is located two miles along the road from Monikie. Crombie fishing is for brown trout only. There are 4 boats available on Crombie and last year the fish averaged around a pound. This pond is virtually surrounded by trees and you could easily mistake it for a natural loch. Flora and fauna abound, and you might be lucky to see deer feeding around the water’s edge. Note that keys and lifejackets for Crombie must be collected from the Bailiff's hut at Monikie.
