Scotland is famous for its freshwater lochs and the Isle of Skye has some fantastic locations to go fly fishing for Trout. Our Ghillie offers guided excursions to Loch Leathan & Loch Fada, also known as the Storr lochs.

The lochs are situated north of Portree and sit at the foot of the famous Old Man of Storr.


Both lochs offer fly fishing for wild Brown Trout, with the bigger of the two lochs (Leathan), offering fly fishing for hard fighting Rainbow Trout.

Both lochs are quite unique due to their Mayfly hatch, which is unusual around this area and it can really bring some fantastic sport.


The fishing can either be from the bank or depending on availability, from a traditional loch style Lomond boat. Tackle is provided during you guided excursion, with both half day and full day trips available.


Booking in advance is advised especially April to June, as this is the peak of the Trout fishing season.



The Portree Angling Association control 21 hill lochs, all of which are listed separately on their website and again a day ticket will cost the visiting angler only £15. These, together with the famous Storr Lochs, offer an outstanding fishing adventure when visiting the Island. 

The Isle of Skye - rugged, beautiful, and an angler's paradise. Here, in the freshest of air, you can fish in complete solitude amongst some of the most spectacular scenery in Scotland. Portree Angling Association controls most of the angling in the North East of the Island of Skye, including the rights for the Storr Lochs, along with many rivers and other waters.


There are Association boats on the Storr Lochs and these include a wheelie boat for disabled access.

 

The Isle of Skye is a great location for salmon and trout fishing and its mainly spate rivers attract anglers from all over the country.  Portree Angling Association has access to eight rivers and streams on Skye , the Amer, Brogaig, Kilmaluag, Kilmartin, Lealt, Ose, Sligachan and the upper (Glenmore beat) of the premiere River Snizort. All carry trout, sea trout and salmon.

 

Day permits are a modest £15 and cover all eight rivers.

  

The season runs from 15th March until 15th October and whilst fair means can be used on some rivers, the fly is the preferred method of fishing.
