Fishery

Historically the traditional method of fishing the Kyle was from a boat, with seatrout the main target species. More recently, however, wading from the shore has taken over as the preferred means of fishing.

The width of the Kyle narrows in a number of key

areas, particularly just upstream of Bonar Bridge and

upstream of Carbisdale. These areas are particularly

favoured by salmon anglers due to increased flows

producing ideal conditions for fly fishing.

Unlike the local rivers that feed the Kyle (Oykel, Carron, Cassley, Shin and

Evelix) dry conditions are favoured by local fishermen

as they result in salmon delaying moving upstream

until there is significant rainfall. Due to the

proximity with the sea, salmon and sea trout caught

in the Kyle are noted for their condition. Salmon

anglers typically use rods of 12-15' in length coupled

with floating lines and a selection of sinking tip

sections. Shrimp flies such as the Oykel GP, Kylie

Shrimp and Cascade are very popular choices by regular

anglers.

The area downstream of Bonar Bridge is particularly noted

for sea trout fishing. The Kyle is one of the few places in Scotland where good baskets of sea trout are taken in daylight hours. Regular sea trout fishers tend to use rods around the 10' mark coupled with floating lines and a range of sinking tip sections.

Traditional wet flies such as Teal, Blue and Silver will catch fish although small flies normally used for salmon such as Irish style shrimp flies, Stoat

Tail etc. are also favoured by many local anglers.

Most anglers fish the Kyle on the ebb tide which lasts

for about eight hours in the Bonar Bridge area. Fish can

be caught on the incoming tide although this is best

left to those experienced enough to fish safely in

rising waters.

Spinning is also permitted in some designated areas,

although fly fishing is the most popular method employed. Plenty of advice is available locally with regard to the tides and best places to fish.
