Fishing in the far north of Scotland
The far north of Scotland has some of the most rugged and spectacular scenery to be found anywhere in Scotland. The waterways are not long rivers, unlike the Tay or Dee, nor are they big featureless expanses of water. These are truly wild, unspoilt spate rivers which fish best on falling water following a rise in levels.
The riperian rights on these rivers are often under single ownership. Anglers usually fish in beat rotation which enables them to experience fishing along it's full extent during the course of a week.
Despite salmon being present during low conditions they are often difficult to tempt. Experienced anglers visiting these waters should also go equipped with a trout rod not only to take advantage of the good wild brown trout fishing to be had on the local lochs but also for sea trout in some of the sea lochs. The most notable of these sea trout destinations is Loch Hope.
