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

    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   6 weeks 5 days ago


    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:


    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   6 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:
    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.
    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 distance from other people (unless members of your household) in line with Government guidance.
    Do not share any fishing tackle or other items.
    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.

    Had a great day in July 2018 with my mate. The fish may be smaller but they fight like wee buggers. Great fun but don't let everyone know. The setting is unbelievable

    Sounds like the one - good news! I have sent you email.

    Hi Adam. Sorry but I have only just seen your post. My friend lost a small bag with a number of fly boxes etc when we were fishing in early Sept 19. We were fishing the 2 un-named lochs just to the east of the Clachtol road. We had parked the car beside the path down to Alltan na Bradhan. He did check with local police in case it had been handed in. Can you let me know how best to contact you? Many thanks Colin Campbell

It includes fun fishing-related games, information, discussions, professional fly tying lessons, qualified fly casting coaching sessions as well as great food and drink available. There's also a fishing competition juniors and adults.
