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 details on the AAG permit guide and include: Loch Assynt, Loch Culag, Loch Druim Suardalain, Loch Awe and Loch Ailsh.

Rivers Inver and 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 Vestey estate and is sold by the Inverlodge Hotel in Lochinver. Although guests have priority, it is possible to get day tickets - please contact the hotel for details.

Inver Estuary

The Assynt Angling Club (part of the AAG) sells day tickets to fish the estuary of the Inver in Lochinver. These can be obtained from Lochinver Post Office for £10.
