Most of the lochs in Easter Ross open on April 1st and close on 30th September, though there are some minor variations around these dates from loch to loch. Typically shallow and/or low lying lochs will start to fish well in early April, though it may be sometime later before the trout are in peak condition. It takes much longer for the water temperature to rise in hill lochs, and those with deeper water, so depending on spring weather some of these lochs may only really start to fish at their best in June, though they can then fish well throughout the summer.
The brown trout fishing season is from 15th March to 6th October, although many proprietors and associations don't start until 1st April. Anglers should check out the arrangements for the particular sections of water they wish to fish.
Trout anglers should also be aware that this is a salmon river. The salmon season runs from 11th February to 31st October.
Easter Ross also offer some great coastal waters.
