    Hi
    Not many - the two you have identified and you can spin from a boat on Cam and Veyatie, but I think it's only trolling that is allowed. The Assynt Angling Group website has been down for ages which has the precise rules on it - I will try and find out more and feed back

    Much as I love fly fishing I sometimes like to cast out a small mepps using a seven foot lightweight rod. I see that spinning is permitted at Loch Borralan and read that there was a four mile stretch of bank on Loch Assynt (not sure exactly which bit). My question, are there other Lochs where spinning is allowed?

  • General Comments   6 weeks 4 days ago

    Hi All, much as I like fly fishing, I also enjoy spinning on light tackle like the small mepps spoons. Can you point me to where I can find information on which of the Assynt Lochs I can use spinners - if at all possible within club rules. Thanks

  • General Comments   7 weeks 19 hours ago

    Hi, Yes as far as we know and people definitely use them. Might be worth double checking when buying permits for info on particular lochs.

    Hi - I'm interested in fishing the Duhb Loch More and Beag just to the south of Ben More Assynt. Are these covered by the Eastern area permit? I can see they are within the boundary shown on the map but couldn't find them listed on the website so just wanted to check. Many thanks.............Pete

    Please could you tell me if float tubes are permitted on the Assynt Lochs?

  • Cam Loch   12 weeks 5 days ago

    You're not allowed to fish with worms on Cam (or anywhere). It is fly, or trolling from a boat, only.

    You're probably best contacting the Assynt Foundation to ask as South Zone is mostly on their land.

  • General Comments   22 weeks 6 days ago

    Hi,i'm heading up next week. Looking to fish some remote, high lochs in the South zone. Are there any access issues as a result of deer stalking in the area. Thanks

  • General Comments   23 weeks 5 days ago

    Hi

    Yes you can. There is an update from both the Assynt Anglers Group and the Assynt Crofters' Trust in the comments section on the right (see Covid Update AAG and Covid Update ACT).

    Details of all vendors are under the Places to Fish tab on this website:

    http://www.assyntanglinginfo.org.uk/outlets

    ACT: http://www.assyntanglinginfo.org.uk/outlets#act
    AAG: http://www.assyntanglinginfo.org.uk/outlets#aag

    Opening hours may change so might be worth ringing in advance.

    Hope that helps

    Hi don't know if my messages are getting through but can you get the permits to other vendors.They only available at the hardware store in lochinver a few weeks ago.thanks

  • General Comments   23 weeks 6 days ago

    Hi, Thanks - yes we are aware of this and have raised it. We are independent of all the organisations who own the fishing and have no control over their website, which has been down for a while. You should be able to get all the information that was on that on here anyway, but let us know if there's something particular you need to know.
    Best regards

    The Assynt Angling Group fishing will be open to all from July 3rd. This will include both boat and bank.

    Advice for anglers:
    GENERAL GUIDANCE:
    If you have symptoms do not leave home and follow Government advice.
    Practice Good Hygiene - Use hand sanitiser before and after touching locks, gates etc. Disposable gloves and use of face masks where appropriate are recommended.
    GETTING TO YOUR LOCH
    You should only travel to fishing venues on your own or with members of your household – comply with all current guidelines on social distancing whilst traveling/walking.
    MAINTAIN SOCIAL DISTANCING
    Maintain distance from other people (unless members of your household) in line with Government guidance.
    FISHING TACKLE
    Do not share any fishing tackle or other items.
    ADDITIONAL GUIDANCE FOR BOATS
    Boats will only be used for one booking per day, swapping anglers is not permitted.
    Boats should only be shared by persons from the same household.
    While using boats, please try to minimise contact and we ask that all anglers wipe down surfaces/contact points after use.
    Due to the difficulties in cleaning and sanitizing of lifejackets, we ask that where possible, anglers use their own lifejackets

    Information from Assynt Crofters' Trust

    From the 3rd fishing will be open to all again, but not boats. There is more work to do to ensure cleaning/disinfecting plans are in place.

    The ACT office in Stoer is open Mon-Fri 9-3pm for permits.

    Boats will be available from 20th July, also from the office.

    The Trust want people to be sensible - keep the necessary distance and wash hands regularly. There will be sanitiser in the office to clean rowlocks etc.

    There are no price changes this year.
