Easter Ross-shire

River Conon


The River Conon, the largest of the Easter Ross-shire rivers, fed by tributaries Orrin, Blackwater, Bran and Meig


Dingwall Angling Club has two miles of the lower river, which can be good for sea trout on the tidal water, the best of the fishing being in early and late summer. Above this stretch are the most productive beats of Upper, Middle and Lower Brahan and, further upstream, the Fairburn and Coul beats, below the Torr Achilty Dam and Loch Achonachie. The Conon beats above Loch Achonachie, the upper beat on the Blackwater, plus the trout fishing on Lochs Meig and Scardroy, are controlled by the Loch Achonachie Angling Club.

The sea trout fishing can be good on the estuary beat controlled by The Dingwall Angling Club however the catches have declined in recent years. 


The best of the fishing on the lower river is in July, while the upper beats do better later in the season, with September being the most productive month.
