Loch Dubh

Take the Achmelvic road from the B869 taking the track on the left at NC072248. Head down to the small bridge over the end of Loch Roe and park near Loch Dubh.

With steep sides and wooded shoreline it can be difficult bank fishing but historically this deep loch has held some good fish.

Hii its too see if i could get 2 day permits for saterday for dubh lock ? Came across this lovley lock when we were sea fishing. Since our local river is very low with no rain at the moment we would like to try new places. Catch and release we do aswell


Hi I have been in touch with the Assynt Angling Group - Loch Dubh is with them - and their permits will only be on sale from July 3rd.

(FYI we are not sellers of permits).

I am hoping to get a full update uploaded this weekend, I just need to find out a bit more detail on what's happening across the board.

Best, Adam

Fished from a float tube in

Fished from a float tube in very good conditions (South Westerly).

Tried pulling wets, dries, sunk lures with only one micro trout throwing itself at a sedgehog and missing.

No other fish showed at all.
