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.

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.

Catches continue on club water
Willie Broadley launched the week with a five pounder from the MacIntyre on Monday. On the Mill Stream, Colin Fraser had a fly-caught six pounder. Today (Tuesday) Neil Fraser met success on a different part of the Ness fishings. The Weir Pool has delivered a few fish for him this year but on this occasion he found success on the Mill Stream, bang on the time of high tide. These are probably the first fish to come off the Mill this summer - perhaps indicating that summer catches are well under way. Neil’s fish, attracted by a black and orange minnow, was estimated at eight pounds and safely returned.

Harry Fraser experienced a pulse-racing battle at the top of the Little Isle Pool. Fishing an orange tube fly, he hooked a lively eight pound fish which took his line down to the backing five or six times before being safely landed. It was Harry's first fish of the season. Also delighted with his first fish of the season was Angus MacKinnon who landed a cock fish of just under eight pounds from the Little Isle, using a copper Toby.Rising catches indicate that there are plenty of fish in the system so it’s well worth getting out for a cast.
