Welcome to the official  R.L.A.C website. Here you can get all the information regarding angling on The River Leven and the River Ore in Fife.

Our Aims

We aim to promote fishing on the River Leven, at an affordable price. It is also in the club’s interest to maintain the river’s general health and being. The club plans to run some basic riverbank maintenance days to keep it clean and accessible in conjunction with the Landowners.

What do we offer

Approximately 16 miles of (mostly) double bank fishing on the River Leven. There is good access to most parts of the River, but if you fancy something a bit more challenging there is also the River Ore which is included with your permits.

River Leven – Main species are Brown Trout and Sea Trout. Salmon have also been caught although in small number. “Catch and Release” especially for salmon is highly recommended. (Please refer to the clubs recommendations regarding our catch and release policy.)

River Ore – Main species  Brown Trout, Pike and Perch.

ALL Fishing is now COMPULSORY catch and release, Atlantic Salmon, Sea Trout and Brown Trout must be returned to the river carefully and unharmed at all times.

Happy Fishing! – The Committee

The River Leven Angling Club was formed at the start of the 2010 season.

The River Leven Angling Club will not accept liability for personal injury, damage or loss incurred.


Members or visitors entering/fishing RLAC waters do so entirely at their own risk. This includes anyone attending river / bank clearing days who will also do so at their own risk and the club is not liable for any loss or injury.
Areas of the Club’s waters are affected by overhead power lines and your attention is drawn to the danger of death or serious injury by electrocution. There may also be steep / undercut banks or dangerous swims or paths and you are advised to take extra care.
Members and visitors are bound by the rules of the Club and the Club will not be liable to any member or visitor or their estates for any personal injury sustained by them, or death, or for the loss of any property. The holder will be bound by the disclaimer and in the case of Juniors under 18 years, the Parent or Guardian must confirm acceptance of this rule.
