Description

ANGLERS PLEASE NOTE: For season 2017 the Scottish Government has introduced legislation which, for conservation purposes, makes it illegal for anglers to kill any salmon & grilse anywhere on the Ness System between 15th January and 30th June. From 1st July to 15th October only one cock fish weighing 8 pounds (69cm/27 inches) or less may be retained per angler per week, with a maximum of two being retained per angler per season.
All hen fish of any size and all cock fish over 8 pounds (69cm/27 inches) must be released. All coloured and unseasonable fish must also be released.

During the Category 3 period, 15th January to 30th June, an angler caught in possession of a dead salmon or grilse faces prosecution which may result in a criminal conviction.

Please see the full Ness Conservation Policy here;


Visitor Permits 2017.
February 1st to May 31st: £15 per day, £75 per week. Junior £10 per day.

June 1st to October 15th: £25 per day, £125 per week. Junior £10 per day.

The beat offers salmon and sea trout fishing on some 10 pools from the edge of Inverness through the Ness Islands. Its wide, streamy pools are especially attractive for fly fishing.

Salmon and grilse run the Ness throughout the year so there's always the chance of a fish for the dedicated angler, from opening day on February 1, when big springers are running to the rivers Moriston, Oich and Garry, to the end of the season on October 15. Activity tends to pick up from June onwards.

Wading is relatively easy in most pools and chest waders are recommended. 15 and 16ft rods are popular but, with modern lines, anglers are increasingly using rods of 12 to 14ft. Shrimp flies work well along with the traditional Stoat's Tail and Silver Stoat.


As a club water, there will always be other anglers enjoying the fishings. They will be happy to help with tips on appropriate flies and lures.
