Salmon and Sea Trout Fishing

Assynt has a number of rivers that get runs of salmon and sea trout which visitors can fish for. You can access these in a number of ways.

Assynt Crofters' Trust

Sea trout run up the Manse system from Loch Roe through the Manse Loch and to Loch an Tuirc. These can be fished for on a normal ACT permit - see the Manse Loch for details.

Assynt Angling Group

There are a number of lochs and sections of river that come under the AAG’s permits that contain migratory fish. These are detailed on the AAG website and permit guide and include: Loch AssyntLoch CulagLoch Druim SuardalainLoch Awe and Loch Ailsh.

River Inver and River Kirkaig

The most famous salmon rivers in the area are the Inver and Kirkaig. Most of the runs tend to occur from July onwards. Fishing in these rivers is owned by the Assynt Estate and is administered by CKD Galbraith. See https://www.sportinglets.co.uk/locations/the-river-kirkaig/ (Kirkaig) and https://www.sportinglets.co.uk/locations/the-river-inver/ (Inver).
