I fished in Assynt in late June and early July this year(2018) The heatwave reached the Northwest Highlands after a couple of days,relentless sunshine and the water in the Lochs becoming unnaturally warm.The returns after the first few sessions were very limited Since then the temperatures have dropped and more rain has fallen but the question is’Has the fishing improved?’ I am considering coming north in the second week of September,am I wasting my time?

"...am I wasting my time fishing in September in Assynt?" or words to that effect. There are people who go fishing and there are those who go solely to catch fish. A very good friend and I both left a nameless angling clus because if you didn't catch your limit of a rainbow water, you were either a rubbish fisher or you couldn't possibly have enjoyed yourself. We have had many days fishing for brown trout and have caught very few, if any but have had a great day out. As an angling author famously said, "Go fishing for pleasure and you'll catch plenty of it!"
Fishing if Assynt is never a waste of time.
