Gress

Fishery

The catchment drains an area of approximately 42 km2; on the north-east coast of the Isle of Lewis. The Gress River is seven miles from its source at Loch Ghrias to the estuary at Gress sands. A spate river with an illustrious past the Gress river fish numbers followed a slow decline over the years culminating in the collapse of fish numbers nationally in the mid seventies.

The river is now under the stewardship of The Gress Angling Association who are attempting to manage the river back toward it's known habitat sustainable stocking density. Some improvement can be seen in the fish numbers and size but this is seen as early days in terms of the river's hopeful recovery.
